Exploring new options to strengthen a player's attacking arsenal is commonplace for young players, and after a stint at the Leeds Rhinos for Welsh international centre Jack Pring, he has returned home to play for the South Wales Scorpions.
Back in 2011, Pring made 3 appearances for the Scorpions, a time in which he was on dual-registration with old Crusaders Super League side.
Pring speaks Welsh fluently, and was a star player back in his school days at Ysgol Gyfun Llanhari in the Champion Schools Competition.
Pring will not be the only former Leeds Rhinos academy player at the club, with Ollie Olds also at the club.
The talented Welsh centre has made two appearances for the Welsh national side at just 19, with Pring now looking forward to rejoining the Scorpions and playing some good footy.
“I gained a lot of experience at the Rhinos but it's really good to be back in South Wales. My aim now is to earn a regular place in the side and help the Scorpions to promotion in 2013. I'm really looking forward to the challenge,” said Pring.
Dave Clark, the Scorpions coach is also excited to see Pring back and to see what he can bring to the table for the club.
“Jack was a part of the Welsh squad this year so I got a close look at his qualities under a national environment,” said Clark.
“He has the potential to be a consistent first team player this year and I'm sure he'll display the high quality skills I have witnessed. Again another exciting young player joins our squad so get behind the Scorpions for the 2013 season.”
