Quins sign promising Scottish Prop
TRANSFER NEWS: Harlequins announced the signing of former Scotland U20 tighthead prop Mak Wilson
Starting all five U20 Six Nations Championship games for Scotland earlier this year, the promising young prop arrives at Harlequins from Melrose-based Super 6 outfit the Southern Knights.
Commenting on his move to South West London, Wilson said: “I come from quite a small town in Scotland, so to sign with a big English team like Harlequins is something I found extremely humbling, and I’m grateful for the chance to play here.
“When this type of opportunity comes up, it’s something you have to take. I am looking forward to the next challenge alongside exciting coaching and playing staff.
“I want to thank everyone for the help and guidance I’ve received at the grassroots level during my time at Duns and Melrose. The help I have received from coaches like Robert Chrystie, who was my Head Coach at Melrose and the Southern Knights, has been invaluable.”
Harlequins Academy Manager Chim Gale said: “Mak is a promising young tighthead who has earned his chance to take the next step up in his career. He has represented Scotland throughout the age-grades and impressed us during this year’s U20 Six Nations.
“We are excited to see Mak add to the environment and continue his development with Quins”
