Player biography


James Chisholm joined his older brother Ross as a full-time Academy member in July 2013 making senior debut that same year against Exeter Chiefs in LV= Cup.

The Haywards Heath-born Number 8 signed for Harlequins from Brighton College and captained England U18s to victory in the FIRA European tournament that year.

He went onto represent England Under-20s during the 2014 Six Nations and won the Junior World Championship later that season. In 2015, James helped the U20s secure the Six Nations title before being named as the World Rugby U20 Championship Player of the Year.

In 2016/17, Chisholm enjoyed more personal success, being named IG Players’ Player of the Season, DHL Player of the Season and Nick Duncombe Young Player of the Season at the Club's End of Season Awards ceremony after scoring six tries in 24 appearances.

2017/18 was similarly prolific for the dynamic back rower, again winning the DHL Player of the Season award and also being awarded the captaincy for Quins' Anglo-Welsh Cup campaign - a responsibility that he took on in 2019/20 in the absence of the Club's Co-Captains, Chris Robshaw and recently retired James Horwill.

In December 2020, the powerful back-rower made his 100th appearance in the Quarters in the European tie with Munster.

His 15 appearances for Harlequins during their successful 2020/21 season took his personal tally at the club to 112 appearances as he helped the side to the Premiership title.

Off the pitch, James has dipped his toes into coaching having held a role at Farnham RFC.

Baxter learning from the best

18th January 2022

Fin Baxter says there's no other better learning environment for a young prop with Adam Jones and Joe Marler to look up to.

Will Evans says it's the best environment he's been a part of in rugby which made it an easy decision to sign a new deal.

Oscar Beard speaks of his joy at re-signing with the team that he grew up with.
