Josh is a very lively 9 with lots of pace and power. He impressed me last year in the Junior World Cup playing for Wales.
Ali is a very powerful and dynamic back row player who has the ability to cover the whole of the back row which will gives us versatility.
Tom is a very powerful rugby player and will bring that to our front row next season.
We have lacked strong ball carriers in that department and I feel Tom can bring that to our game.
It shows the strong link we have with Exeter and I'm looking forward to having Tom with us as a full time Albion player.
