Harlequins has today announced that Bath prop Nick Auterac will join the south west London club at the end of the season.
Director of Rugby John Kingston commented: “Nick is a highly respected and experienced Premiership loosehead prop. It is a position we already have strength in, but his arrival will ensure we have the necessary quality throughout the season in a key position.
“I know he has aspirations on the Representative front and I am sure with our quality coaching group advancing his game, he will be able to take his performances on to the next level at Harlequins.”
The 25-year-old loosehead will add further strength and depth to front row options at The Stoop, which already include England props Joe Marler, Kyle Sinckler and Will Collier, plus the up-and-coming Lewis Boyce – who received his first call up to the England senior squad earlier this year.
“I’m really excited about joining Harlequins,” said Auterac. “It’s a club I have always followed closely and the opportunity to work with John Kingston, Graham Rowntree and Adam Jones is something I am really looking forward to and cannot wait to get started.”
