Harlequins announces signing of Academy fly-half James Lang

Harlequins is pleased today (Wednesday 29th June 2016) to announce the signing of fly-half James Lang, who will join the Harlequins Academy with immediate effect on a two year contract.

The 21 year old, who was born locally to The Stoop in Ashford, Middlesex and was originally involved at schoolboy level with Harlequins, has also represented Scotland U18 and Wales Students in his career to date.
 
A strong kicker, both out of hand, and at goal, James joins the London club from Rugby Gogledd Cymru (RGC) in North Wales where he developed under the tutelage of Phil Davies who has formerly overseen Leeds, Worcester, Scarlets and Cardiff.
 
Harlequins Academy and Global Development Director Tony Diprose commented: "I am really looking forward to James joining the squad. He is a talented young player who has gone away and made his own path from the last time we saw him at 18 years old and has progressed hugely.
 
"His attacking style of play suits the way we want to develop as a team and I am confident we can help him achieve his rugby ambitions here at Harlequins."
 
Alongside his kicking skills, James has a keen eye for a break as well as the coveted ability to bring others into the game.
 
Lang added: "I am very excited to be joining Harlequins, a club renowned for their style of play and steeped in history and heritage. They are a very progressive club with an excellent outlook and I am looking forward to learning from the coaches and my fellow players.
 
"To be at a club with the calibre of players that they have and to play alongside the likes of Nick Evans will set me in good stead as I develop my game and achieve my ambitions."
