James can play in all three back-row positions meaning he adds plenty of versatility to the pack, and has plenty of experience across a number of previous clubs.
James joined London Scottish, for the second time, from National One side Chinnor having played under current Director of Rugby Matt Williams there.
Much travelled Tyas has played over 100 Championship matches for Cornish Pirates, Plymouth Albion, Moseley, Rotherham Titans and London Scottish. He came through the Bath academy before making his debut for their first team, and also spent time with Worcester Warriors.
Tyas featured for Scotland at Under 17, 18 and 20 level, playing alongside former London Scots Jamie Stevenson and David Cherry.
James has a dual-purpose role here at London Scottish, both as a player and as head of analysis for the first team.
