David Young, the captain of the Welsh rugby league team in the European Championship this summer, will become the first player returning from the 13-a-side code to be offered a playing contract with the Welsh Rugby Union. Terry Cobner, director of rugby in Wales, wants the former Wales and British Lions prop to become the 19th contracted player in the National Squad, even though he has not played union for six years. "We have offered David Young a contract and he is delighted to take it up and be involved in the Welsh international scene again," Cobner said.
