Edinburgh have announced the signing of Jono Lance from Gallagher Premiership club Worcester Warriors ahead of the 2020/21 season.

Lance has the experience of playing for Reds, Waratahs and Wester Force making a combined 51 Super Rugby appearances between them before joining Worcester Warriors in 2017. Since his arrival to the Sixways Stadium, the 29-year-old played 30 times for the Warriors scoring 82 tries in it.

“To get the chance to come to a club that has become one of the strongest in the Guinness PRO14 and to hopefully play Champions Cup rugby was an opportunity I couldn’t refuse," he told the official website of the club.

“The style of rugby Edinburgh have been playing is something that excites me and to have coaches who feel that you can be a big part of developing that brand of rugby was something I wanted to be a massive part of.

“My partner and I did a big drive through Scotland as a holiday and loved all of it. And Edinburgh is one of the greatest cities in the world, so to have the chance to play rugby there really is amazing.

“After chatting to some players and meeting the coaches to hear their vision for the club in the near future and long term, it’s clear that there are exciting times ahead for Edinburgh Rugby.”
