Harlequins sign South African back Green

Harlequins have signed South African back Tyrone Green.

The 22-year-old is joining Quins after leaving the Emirates Lions.

A product of the Jeppe High School for Boys in Johannesburg, Green was a standout performer for the South Africa Under-20 team during the 2018 Junior World Championship.

Green said: “I think it’s very exciting. I’ve always wanted to make a move to England since I was young and Harlequins is one club that’s appealed to me for quite a while now.£

Quins head of rugby Paul Gustard said: “Tyrone is someone I have been watching for some considerable time.”
