London Scottish is pleased to reveal that Jason Harries has signed a contract extension to remain at the Athletic Ground for another season.
The Welshman has scored seven tries in his debut season at the club, including a brace and man-of-the-match award against Doncaster Knights last month, with his power and pace making him a fan-favourite in Richmond.
Harries has played most of his rugby on the wing, however has also featured in the centre, with his versatility giving the back-line an extra dimension throughout the 15/16 campaign.
The 27-year-old spent the majority of his club career at Welsh Premiership outfit Carmarthen Quins where he came through the junior ranks, before spending three years with Wales Sevens on the IRB Sevens Circuit.
The 6’3” former Wales Sevens representative is elated to be extending his stay with Scottish. “I have thoroughly enjoyed my first year here at Scottish.
I’m delighted to have re-signed with the club, who have big ambitions and are moving forward in the right direction.
He continued: “I have learned a lot in my first year in the Championship and look forward to progressing further next season.”
Head Coach Peter Richards is excited that Harries will remain at Scottish. “Jason has got better as the season has gone on and I’m really pleased for him.
He has come in to his own in recent weeks on the wing or in the centre, and has definitely been a standout performer so we all look forward to working with him again in the 16/17 season.”
