Edinburgh have confirmed the signing of London Scottish winger Jason Harries ahead of the 2017/18 season.

The 6'3" former Wales Sevens star has penned a one-year deal with the Pro 12 side and has scored 22 tries from 45 appearances for the Richmond outfit.

Harries said: "I've heard a lot of good things about Edinburgh and it seems to be an exciting time for the club, so I'm looking forward to joining up with the squad.

"There's going to be a lot of competition for a spot in the back-three, but that's what we thrive on as rugby players and it can only make us better.

"I can carry the ball hard, run hard and will come looking for work off the wings. I'll be looking to bring that versatility to the team."
