Prop Cai Griffiths returns to Ospreys from London Welsh

Prop Cai Griffiths has returned to Ospreys after being released by Aviva Premiership club London Welsh.

The 30-year-old Bangor-born tight-head made 123 appearances in two previous stints at Liberty Stadium.

He joined London Irish in August 2012, but was back in Swansea on loan six months later before spending 2013-14 with the Exiles.

Griffiths, who helped London Welsh to return to English rugby's top flight, is Ospreys' sixth summer signing.

Centre Josh Matavesi joined from Worcester and full-back Dan Evans left Newport Gwent Dragons for the Liberty Stadium.

Lock Rynier Bernardo has been recruited from South African side Eastern Province Kings, along with hooker Sam Parry from Dragons and loose-head prop Gareth Thomas from Carmarthen Quins.
