Harlequins sign Bath Rugby prop Nick Auterac

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.”
