Transfer Rumours: Former NFL fullback set to join Premiership club

Former NFL and Chicago Bears fullback Paul Lasike is set to join Harlequins, according to RugbyPass

The 28-year-old went undrafted out of Brigham Young University, before featuring in 10 games for the Bears.

He was cut in 2017, leading to a switch to rugby following the advent of the Major League Rugby competition in the US this year.

Lasike is a powerful ball-carrier and will bolster Quins’ options at 12, where Francis Saili had an injury-plagued 2017/18 season.
