Pete Lydon sees Scots benefiting from new signings

26th August 2015

Peter Lydon says London Scottish’s summer signings have already made their mark by helping to create new styles of play as the Exiles look for another successful season in the Greene King IPA Championship.

Since joining from Stade Francais last summer, Lydon has been one of the Greene King IPA Championship's stand-out performers, playing a central role in Scottish's play-off push.

The Irishman said: “We have made some good signings at the back. We had Drew Locke come in from Jersey; we have Russell Weir from the Scotland Sevens set-up and Jason Harries from the Wales Sevens set-up.

“They are just a few I could mention who have settled in well and have brought in their own new ideas as well.

“We did well last year but we can’t rely just on the same style of play so we have been working on a few new things and the new signings have helped massively with that.

“We have some big boys in the pack as well but that is a little bit outside of my expertise but in terms of the backline, it is really exciting.”

The 22 year-old, who played at 10, 12 and 15 last season, was pleased with Scottish’s overall performance last season.
