Harlequins agree deal with 'exciting talent' Lang
Scotland international James Lang has re-signed for Harlequins.
Lang, 23, who is comfortable at centre or fly-half, with most of his appearances coming at fly-half this season, made his debut for the club in 2016 and has since gone on to appear 39 times for Harlequins, scoring 133 points.
He was the clubs second highest points scorer last season after which he earned his first call-up to Gregor Townsend’s Scotland squad for their tour of North America.
One of the most exciting young players in the senior squad with his range of pass, long range kicking and deceptive step, Lang has helped the squad rise to third in the Gallagher Premiership and reach the Challenge Cup quarter-finals already this season and Head of Rugby Paul Gustard said there is even more to come from the back.
“James has been great for us this season, whether he has started or been a Game Changer he has consistently managed to show his strengths with ball in hand and has impressed us with his kicking game.
“He is an exciting talent who brings a lot of energy and flair to the group and we are all looking forward to working with him as we go in search of honours.
“He is a young man who has a lot of ability and I am sure with purposeful dedication to develop his talent he can go on to be a big player for us and also for Scotland.
“He is a great lad with a cracking personality and perhaps the only member in the squad who can sing as many songs from musicals as Joe Marchant.”
Lang said: “We are building a winning ethos at Harlequins and I am really proud to be a part of that. The club’s heritage has always been about playing fast, exciting rugby and always with that sense of adventure.
“Gussy has arrived at the Club this season and brought with him a work ethic and a sense of fun which we know is going to reap rewards very soon in the form of trophies. It is an exciting time and I am thrilled to be a part of it.”
