“He continues to be a threat with his running game and is growing in confidence, whether he plays at 10, 12 or 15.”

Lydon said: “I'm really happy to have re-signed with London Scottish.

“I want to say a big thanks to all the fans as well as my teammates for helping me settle into life in London.

“With the squad and coaching team we have here at London Scottish, I believe we have the talent to kick-on next season and further improve on what has been a great season so far.”

He added: “For now the only focus is securing a place in the end of season play-offs and the squad is very determined to achieve that goal.”
