Former Steelers TE Christian Scotland-Williamson Returns to Rugby; Signs with Harlequins



Former Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Christian Scotland-Williamson has returned to playing rugby, signing with London’s Harlequins in Premiership Rugby, the top level of English rugby union, according to a report by Rugby Pass.

A native of Waltham Forest, London, Scotland-Williamson played rugby for the Worcester Warriors from 2014-17 before trying his hand at American Football as a tight end with the Steelers. 

As a part of the NFL’s International Player Pathway program, Scotland-Williamson was signed by the Steelers on May 1, 2018 and spent all of the 2018 and 2019 seasons on the team’s practice squad.

The Harlequins won the 2021 Premiership Final, the club’s second victory in the competition. The 2021-22 season will begin on Sept. 17.
