At only 23, the wing from Llanelli has already built an impressive rugby portfolio including experience in the Welsh Premiership, English National divisions, and the Australian leagues, which all started at Kidwelly RFC and the Scarlets Academy.
Randall will be returning to Wales from Hartpury RFC where he has spent the last season playing to secure the club’s promotion to the English Championship league from division 1. Prior to this, Jake spent two seasons at Henley Hawks RFC, which included a five-month period away in Australia playing for the Hamilton Hawks in Sydney.
Back in the Welsh Premiership, Randall played at Llandovery RFC from 2010-2014, making 54 appearances and scoring 13 tries. The winger also plays rugby 7s with Apache 7’s team and was a part of the Wales 7s development squad following his time at Llandovery.
On his return to Wales, Randall commented; “Playing with Hartpury and Henley has given me some really worthwhile experiences playing at a high level of rugby and I’m excited to be coming back to play in the Premiership with everything I’ve learned. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in to the league fixtures and hope to be able to earn my starting place in the match day squad.”
Richard Lancaster went on to say; “Jakes already experienced the Welsh Premiership with Llandovery before playing at a higher level in England. He’s moving back to work for his family business giving us the opportunity now to sign him. He’s a fast and strong athlete with considerable experience for his young age. He’s been quietly getting about his business and getting back towards his best fitness level and is getting on well with the boys already.”
