The Cornish Pirates have signed scrum-half Cameron Jones ahead of next season, who recently left the Ospreys at the end of their campaign.

The 23-year-old Welsh-born back spent the last season at the Ospreys having previously played for Edinburgh and Glasgow Warriors.

After coming through the Ospreys’ regional pathway, Jones represented Wales at U16 level, but later played for Scotland U18 having qualified through his Scottish grandfather.
