The winger/fullback recently helped Ealing secure a second Championship title, scoring eight tries in eleven fixtures in another successful campaign for the London outfit.

The 31-year-old added 25 tries to his name over two seasons, something London Scottish will be hoping he replicates, as they scored the third-fewest tries this season.

Holmes started his senior career for Wasps in 2010, but left the club after three seasons, joining Leeds Carnegie where he made an instant impact. Leicester Tigers proceeded to sign him in the summer of 2017, where he remained until 2020, going over the whitewash 21 times.

He made his Test debut for Wales in November 2018 versus Tonga and continued his international career the following year, playing 80 minutes in the 2019 Six Nations- his only outing in the historic tournament. He played his final two international games in 2021, scoring a brace against Canada.

In 2020, Holmes made a move across the Severn to play for the Dragons, finally joining Ealing in 2022.

The seven-time Wales international shared with RugbyPass the reason why he decided to accept London Scottish’s proposal, saying: “London Scottish was where my rugby journey began and the RAG has always been a special place for me.”

He also added he will become semi-pro in this next chapter of his sports life: “Full-time rugby has come to an end a few years earlier than I’d planned but I’m very happy that London Scottish have given me the chance to keep playing in the Championship while I pursue a career in commercial building surveying.”
