"Giles and Larsen will be staying with us, they’ve both been offered deals.

I knew about Giles anyway from him playing against us over the years and I’ve always liked him as a player. He’s come in and done really well.

Larsen impressed me as soon as he walked through the door and trained with us. He’s definitely got something and I’m delighted to get both of them on board.”
