London Scottish have signed Gloucester Rugby back-row forward Lewis Ludlow on a dual-registered contract until the end of the season.
The former England age-group internationalist made his debut for Gloucester last year in a friendly against Japan and has been involved in the Premiership outfit's LV=Cup campaign this season.
Ludlow, 20, is expected to go straight into the squad for Saturday's home clash against Moseley, 3pm kick-off.
London Scottish Director of Rugby, Mike Friday, said: “We are really pleased that Lewis is joining us for the remainder of the season.
“He is highly regarded having been picked last year by England under-20s and is seen at Gloucester as one of their most exciting young players.
“I am hoping Lewis can play a key role in our remaining league fixtures.”
