A native of Perth, Australia, he represented Australia Universities before playing Super Rugby with Melbourne Rebels between 2012 and 2014.

Confirming the news Harlequins director of rugby John Kingston said: “Due to the combined injuries to Luke Wallace and Chris Robshaw, and Jack Clifford’s commitments with England, we need some short-term cover in the back-row area.
