Speaking on the Harlequins website, he spoke of his excitement at the news.

“I’m extremely excited to be starting a new challenge with Harlequins, a club with a great history, tradition and one that plays in a style that is similar to my rugby philosophy.

“After speaking to John Kingston and Conor O’Shea I could see how great a club it is. I also spoke with Tim Visser and he only had positive things to say; I’m looking forward to working hard and testing myself in a new environment.

“Having someone like Nick Evans was another big draw; he’s a guy I have watched a lot of and will look forward to picking his brain and challenging him and the other tens for that shirt.”

Wasps’ loss is Harlequins’ gain, and the Scot will be eager to break into the team at the Twickenham Stoop next season.
