Harlequins sign Roberts

2015-05-19 08:29

LONDON — Wales centre Jamie Roberts will join English Premiership side Harlequins from next season, the club said yesterday.

“The whole club are ecstatic to have signed a player of Jamie’s quality,” Harlequins director of rugby Conor O’Shea said in a statement confirming Roberts’s switch from French club Racing Metro.

“He is massively ambitious to achieve at both club and international level. As a role model to all of our players, he will be someone we can all learn from.”

Roberts, three times a Six Nations champion and a member of the triumphant 2013 British and Irish Lions squad, joined Racing Metro in 2013 after six years with Cardiff Blues.

The 28-year-old, one of the best ball carriers in the business, has earned 69 caps for Wales and was part of the grand slam winning squads in 2008 and 2012.
