Australian stand-off Jono Lance will join Edinburgh from Worcester next season, the Scottish club have announced.

The 29-year-old, a Super Rugby winner with both the Queensland Reds and New South Wales Waratahs, has spent the past two and a half seasons with Worcester, making 30 appearances and scoring 82 points.

However, he said was now keen to play in the Guinness PRO14 and target Champions Cup rugby.

Lance said: β€œThe style of rugby Edinburgh have been playing is something that excites me and to have coaches who feel that you can be a big part of developing that brand of rugby was something I wanted to be a massive part of.”

Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill added: β€œJono is a very experienced playmaker that fits the mould of both the type of rugby player and person that we want at this club.

β€œHe’s a good character that works hard for his team-mates and we believe that his skillset is well suited to the style of rugby we want to implement at Edinburgh.”
