Long-serving Harlequins flanker Luke Wallace is stepping down from the Gallagher Premiership to join IPA Greene King Championship side Coventry Rugby.
The 28-year-old was named in a 16-player strong list, published on May 3, to be leaving The Stoop this summer.
“I am really looking forward to joining Coventry and linking up with the team next week,” he said. “It is a good opportunity for me to join a strong squad and play my part during an exciting time for the club.”

Director of Rugby Rowland Winter says that Wallace is a strong addition to the squad.
“Luke is going to add significant experience to the team and we are excited to get him on board,” he added. “We have lots of quality in the back row and the competition for places will be fierce, which is exactly what we need in order to drive our way up the league table.”
