Scotland international Ruaridh Jackson will join Harlequins from Wasps ahead of the 2016/17 Aviva Premiership season.

“After speaking to John Kingston and Conor O’Shea I could see how great a club it is. I also spoke with Tim Visser and he only had positive things to say; I’m looking forward to working hard and testing myself in a new environment.

“Having someone like Nick Evans was another big draw; he’s a guy I have watched a lot of and will look forward to picking his brain and challenging him and the other tens for that shirt.”

Having represented Scotland at U18, U19, U20, A, and 7s level, Jackson made his senior Test debut in 2010 against New Zealand at Murrayfield and has 28 caps to his name.



Harlequins’ incoming Director of Rugby John Kingston added: “I’m really excited that Ruaridh will be joining us next season – his style fits the way we play perfectly and he will provide excellent competition in a key position for us.

“Throughout his career he has shown that he can perform at the highest level and we are looking forward to adding his expertise next season.”
