Chris Harris



Carlisle-born Chris Harris first earned selection with the senior Scotland squad for the 2017 Autumn Tests after a string of impressive performances for Newcastle Falcons.

Harris moved to Newcastle aged 18 to study Architecture at Northumbria University, where he combined his study with rugby for both the Falcons Academy and National League One side Tynedale RFC.

Qualifying to play for Scotland through his Edinburgh-born grandmother, the versatile back made his 6 Nations debut away in Cardiff in 2018, featuring consistently for the national team and playing a part in all four matches of Scotland’s 2019 World Cup campaign in Japan.

A model of consistency, the now-Gloucester centre has featured in all 19 of Scotland’s international fixtures since a World Cup warm-up against Georgia in September 2019, his exceptional defence and rugby brain helping to gain selection for the British & Irish Lions’ tour to South Africa, where he started the first Test in Cape Town.
