NEC Harlequins are delighted to announce the signing of Samoan international George Harder. The 28 year-old winger has signed a two-year contract and joins Quins from Zurich Premiership rivals Leeds Tykes.
Harder played for the Samoan team that reached the World Cup quarterfinals in 1995, where they lost to the host nation South Africa. Before making the move to Leeds last summer, he played for the Auckland Blues in the Super 12's and also for Auckland in New Zealand's domestic NPC tournament. In 1996, Harder represented Brisbane BroncoÃƒs rugby league team.
"I am extremely pleased to have secured the services of such an experienced and talented player," said Mark Evans, NEC Harlequins Chief Executive.
"George consistently caught the eye in the Premiership this last season with some outstanding performances and if he can repeat this form during the forthcoming campaign then I'm sure he will quickly become a firm favourite with the Quins supporters."
During week commencing 22nd April Harlequins will launch an innovative, new Membership Scheme which will replace the existing Season Ticket Holder Programme. Further details of the scheme will be announced in due course.
