Harlequins have announced that Wales international hooker Scott Baldwin will join the club for the 2019/20 season. The hooker said he was delighted to be joining the club after 10 years with Ospreys, where he has made over 120 appearances.
Baldwin, who has 34 caps for his country, said:
“There is something special going on at Harlequins at the moment and I am looking forward to starting my Gallagher Premiership career there next season.
“I have met with Gussy and the staff at Harlequins and been very impressed with the winning mentality that they have installed there.
“I am going there to win trophies and I know they have the squad and the mind-set to do it.”
Head of Rugby Paul Gustard said:
“Scott is an excellent signing for the Club. He has had an outstanding career for club and country so far in Wales and I am very pleased he is joining us next season.
“We have followed him in the Pro14 and he has impressed with his attitude, his humour and all-round technical ability. We know he will be a great fit and a key member of the squad as we look to improve and fulfil our ambitions.
“He is a big man, who excels in the set-piece and is abrasive both sides of the ball around the field. He will add leadership qualities to our group and brings a wealth of experience to the squad.
“We look forward to welcoming Scott and his young family to the club.”
It’s been a busy few today for Harlequins who also announced the signing of Italy international Michele Campagnaro today as well as Argentinian duo Martin Landajo and Santiago Garcia Botta earlier in the week.
