Springbok lock joins Harlequins
TRANSFER NEWS: South Africa lock Stephan Lewies has become the latest player to join Harlequins ahead of next season.
The English Premiership side also announced Leicester flank Will Evans and Newcastle second row Glen Young will arrive at the London club in time for the 2019/20 campaign.
Lewies, 27, is currently on loan at Super Rugby side the Lions in Johannesburg from the Sharks, who are based in Durban.
He was called up to the Springbok squad for the Test against Scotland in Port Elizabeth during June 2014 and has also represented South Africa A.
Harlequins head coach Paul Gustard told the club’s website: “Stephan is an intelligent and hard-working lock who we know will add real quality at the club.”
Lewies added: “This is a very exciting time for me, to be joining a club with such a great history and standing in English rugby, but also one that is on a new journey with a new head of rugby who, like me, is incredibly ambitious.
