Edinburgh Rugby have signed London Scottish winger Jason Harries on a one-year deal.

The former Wales age-grade internationalist, 28, joined the Richmond club in 2015 and has made 45 appearances, scoring 22 tries. Harries inished the 2016/17 season as the club’s top try scorer and was also named in the Championship Dream Team. Harries said: “I’ve heard a lot of good things about Edinburgh and it seems to be an exciting time for the club, so I’m looking forward to joining up with the squad.

“There’s going to be a lot of competition for a spot in the back-three, but that’s what we thrive on as rugby players and it can only make us better. I can carry the ball hard, run hard and will come looking for work off the wings. I’ll be looking to bring that versatility to the team.”

Prior to joining the Exiles, Harries featured for Wales on the World Rugby Sevens Series circuit for three years.

Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill, said: “Jason has shown he’s a classy finisher in his time at London Scottish, so we’re looking for him to keep that going when he joins up with the squad.”
