TRANSFER NEWS | Worcester Warriors star heading North

Edinburgh Rugby have secured the signing of Australian stand-off Jono Lance who will join the club from Worcester Warriors next season.

A Super Rugby winner with both the Queensland Reds and New South Wales Waratahs, Lance, 29, has a wealth of experience at the top level, providing invaluable cover at both stand-off and fullback.

Having joined the Warriors in late 2017, Lance has since made 30 appearances at Sixways, scoring 82 points in that period.

On joining the club, Lance, said: “To get the chance to come to a club that has become one of the strongest in the Guinness PRO14 and to hopefully play Champions Cup rugby was an opportunity I couldn’t refuse.

“The style of rugby Edinburgh have been playing is something that excites me and to have coaches who feel that you can be a big part of developing that brand of rugby was something I wanted to be a massive part of.

“My partner and I did a big drive through Scotland as a holiday and loved all of it. And Edinburgh is one of the greatest cities in the world, so to have the chance to play rugby there really is amazing.

“After chatting to some players and meeting the coaches to hear their vision for the club in the near future and long term, it’s clear that there are exciting times ahead for Edinburgh Rugby.”


Full List Of 52 Gallagher Premiership Players Out Of Contract At End Of Season

Gallagher Premiership players have been left in limbo with the season on hold amid the coronavirus pandemic, with at least 53 of them due to become free agents at the end of June.

We’ve not included players who have confirmed a move elsewhere or have announce they’ll retire.

With some clubs not releasing contract lengths, the figure is probably much higher. Very worrying.
