Experienced and abrasive inside centre Henari Veratau has signed terms with London Scottish for the 2018/19 Greene King IPA Championship season.

The former Brumbies and Queensland Reds player has joined the Scots from France where he was plying his trade with Bourgoin.

Veratau, who has also played for Northern Suburbs in Sydney’s Shute Shield competition, the same club current flanker Matt Marley is playing at, was happy to be back in a professional rugby environment with London Scottish.

“I’m really pleased to be joining London Scottish and extremely grateful for the opportunity to be playing with such a talented squad. Although I’ve only just come on board, it has been refreshing to join such a professional organisation that expects the highest standards of each other throughout. This past week on tour in Scotland has been beneficial in regard to getting to know the boys and being brought up to speed through training and I can already tell that it is going to be an exciting group to be a part of.”

Veratau joins a very experienced and exciting centre corps for the Exiles. Veratau adds to the likes of Scotland international Richie Vernon, last season’s Supporters Player of the Season Ben Mosses and newly announced signing, Bath University graduate Craig Duncan.

Veratau also played over in Japan back in 2009 when he represented the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries side, Mitsubishi Sagamihira Dynaboars, based in Kanagawa.

Director of Rugby Dave Morris was very pleased to have added a proven competitor of Henari’s pedigree to the Scottish squad for the new season.

“We are delighted to welcome Henari to London Scottish. Henari came for a trial during pre-season and it was immediately obvious that he was a very talented and skillful rugby player as well as a high calibre individual. He will bring a huge amount of experience to our group of players and an ability to play a number of positions in the backline.”
