HARLEQUINS IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE SIGNING OF TWO SCRUM HALVES, DYLAN MUNRO AND LLOYD WHEELDON, AS THE CLUB LOOKS TO FURTHER BOLSTER ITS HALF-BACK OFFERING.
Munro signed a two-year deal with the Harlequins Academy earlier this month, joining from Stellenbosch Academy of Sport where the 19-year-old was a key player for the Stellenbosch Rugby side in his home nation of South Africa.
Expressing his delight, Munro said: “Harlequins is a Club known across the globe, so to be joining is a dream come true for me. I have already learnt so much and being around such a talented group has helped me grow as a player. I can’t wait to get out there in the famous Quarters and represent this team.”
Also joining the Club after a successful trial is fellow scrum half Lloyd Wheeldon. He has been offered a short-term contract to provide cover at Number 9 with current injuries to “The Talisman” Danny Care and young hotshot Niall Saunders, who will unfortunately be out for around three weeks with an oblique injury, following his explosive start against Bristol Bears in the Premiership Rugby Cup.
A serving Lance Corporal in 3 Para, Wheeldon joins Harlequins following a successful spell with the Army Rugby Union. The 23-year-old has already represented Harlequins at the recent Premiership Rugby 7s tournament, scoring against Bristol in the quarter-final
