Pontypridd's back row options will be considerably enhanced by the return of Ed Siggery to the club's ranks in readiness for the coming season.
The powerhouse blind-side flanker makes his way back to Sardis Road after a brief one year absence, during which time he signed for London Irish in the English Premiership, and played also on permit for promotion winning Championship side London Welsh.
Hailing from Carmarthen, Siggery was developed through the Scarlets Academy and represented Wales at all youth age grades and up to Under 20 level.
Having enrolled as a student at the University of Glamorgan, he joined up with Pontypridd in the summer of 2010 and made a big impact with his "double D" performances - dynamic and destructive - on the flank. "The Sig" also became a big favourite with the Sardis Road support, a larger than life character both on and off the field of play.
Siggery now returns to Pontypridd, joining the club's campaign as defending Premiership Champions. Aged 21, standing at 6ft 3in and weighing in at a lean and mean 16st, the Sig will seek to resume his status as a key player for a club intent on challenging for domestic and cross border honours in the season to come.
