​​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.

After completing his degree in 2013 Harris joined up with the England Counties squad for a tour of Belgium before returning to Kingston Park to begin his first full-time season with the Falcons, continuing to represent Tynedale on dual registration.

Having been one of the stand-out performers in the Falcons’ 2014 Premiership Rugby 7s squad and scoring a try apiece in each of the club’s three group D victories, Harris began the subsequent season dual registered with Championship side Rotherham Titans.

After an impressive stint in Yorkshire the fast and skillful centre/wing was recalled to Newcastle in time for the opening rounds of the European competition and continued to impress, going on to score a brace of tries in his Premiership debut at home to Saracens in December 2014.

A further three tries in his subsequent two league appearances, including an Aviva Premiership Try of the Week away to Northampton, ensured that Harris continued to turn heads and led to him being crowned Academy Player of the Season at the club’s end-of-season awards.

The versatile back made his 6 Nations debut away in Cardiff in 2018, featuring consistently for the national team and playing in all four matches of Scotland's 2019 World Cup campaign in Japan.
