“I am really pleased to have signed my first professional contract with London Scottish. Having spent the last three years combining studying for a PGCE and at Oxford University with teaching at Kingham Hill School, I have been lucky enough to be involved a couple of Varsity matches at Twickenham.

He added: “After spending some time with the club and Dave Morris it is an exciting time to be joining London Scottish. I am excited to pull on the shirt for the first time and meeting the supporters.” 
Director of Rugby Dave Morris is pleased to add further competition to the back-line.

He also has real versatility being able to play a number of positions across the back line.”
