Harlequins have announced the signing of Scotland international Huw Jones ahead of the 2021/22 season
Born in Edinburgh and raised in Kent, Jones, 27, has represented Scotland on 31 occasions to date. A versatile player able to cover multiple positions across the backline, Jones made his international debut in 2016 against Japan in Tokyo, with his most recent cap coming during the 2021 Six Nations against France at the Stade de France in Paris.
After moving to Cape Town, South Africa, during a gap year Jones earned his breakthrough within the professional game playing for the Stormers in Super Rugby, where he played alongside current Quins prop Wilco Louw and against centre Andre Esterhuizen and Club Captain Stephan Lewies.
Jones subsequently signed for Glasgow Warriors as his Test career took off, playing for the Scottish side for four years, scoring 12 tries in 49 appearances.
Commenting on Jones’ arrival, Attack and Backs Coach Nick Evans said: “It’s great to have Huw signed on with us here at Quins. Huw made a big impact when he burst onto the scene a few years ago and has fantastic instincts for the game.
“Huw is an attack-minded player, and we believe he will fit into the Harlequins way well. We look for players who will suit the Harlequins DNA, and we see that in Huw. We’re excited to see him link up with the squad this summer as we look to build upon last season’s success.”
