Ben Adams heads 'home' for full-time return to Cambridge Rugby Club
Ben Adams will be pulling on a Cambridge shirt again next season after re-signing for the club on a permanent basis.
The 30-year-old No 8 made 20 appearances last season on loan from Coventry, but he has now returned to Volac Park on a full-time basis.
Adams was an inspirational figure when he first arrived at Cambridge from Australia, helping the club to the National League 2S title in 2016.
He went on to spend two seasons at Bedford Blues, and then a further two years with Coventry.
“Ben is someone that has a really strong affinity with Cambridge,” said director of rugby Richie Williams.
“When he first came over from Australia, he had a successful season before going on to play at Bedford and more recently at Coventry.
“What you see is what you get from Ben. He was with us last season on loan from Coventry.
“A lot of the success last season came from Ben’s leadership on the field, he was really good at supporting George Bretag-Norris in his captain role.
“He was really consistent with his performances, carries really well and understands the game of rugby fantastically well.
“He is just a really good character to have around the club both on and off the field.”
Williams added: “Whilst it is a new signing, it’s not in another sense as he has a really strong connection with everything Cambridge.
“We’re really happy to get Ben back and have him for the full season.”
