See how the Etihad Airways', Fly With The Best, Train With The Best competition winners got on at their exclusive behind the scenes training day at Harlequins' training ground
The 30 year old, who played over 210 games for Saracens, has signed a 2 ½ year contract, which will see him at Quins until the summer of 2012.
Head Coach, John Kingston, says:
"I am absolutely delighted that we have secured Matt Cairns, who is a high-quality and proven hooker. It is great that we have been able to identify and secure such quality so soon after the departure of Gary Botha. The competition for the number 2 shirt will be an interesting one, given that we already have two class acts in the shape of England Saxons, Chris Brooker, and Samoan International, Tani Fuga.
Matt Cairns, says:
"I am really happy to have signed with Quins and look forward to the opportunity to play with a really exciting bunch of young players. Harlequins have a great coaching team and I can't wait to get involved with the club in the Guinness Premiership and compete in the Heineken Cup.
