Harlequins Will Be Signing Up Ruaridh Jackson

With players being signed on for the upcoming season, Harlequins team is looking at signing up Ruaridh Jackson.

He currently plays the fly half role for Wasps team. He has made about eighteen appearances for Wasps so far and has been able to score 72 points. However, the points that he missed out in the last season were mainly due to a knee injury he sustained. For Harlequins, targeting players from the rival team Wasps are strategic decisions. As both teams are rivals, the right decorum or codes need to be maintained at the time of taking up a player from the opposing team.

Ruaridh Jackson is 28 years of age, being Scottish in origin. He has played for the Wasps for the last two seasons. Before that he had played for Glasgow Warriors for about six years. The Quins director had to provide reasons for getting this player over to their team. As per John Kingston, the director of rugby for Quins, the style of playing of Ruaridh Jackson is perfect for Harlequins. Hence, he will fit in well with minimal playing style adjustments required.

The director is hopeful that Ruaridh Jackson will bring in a new competitive spirit in the team. The length of the player’s involvement in the team has not been disclosed to the media as yet. When Jackson played for Scotland he had won about 28 caps. His Test debut match had been against New Zealand. This was in the year 2010. The Six Nations game had seen him making an appearance as well.

For Ruaridh Jackson it is definitely a good career move. He feels that the new team will imbibe better playing skills with him. He will be able to test his skills and imbibe new ones from his new team players in Harlequins.
