Before his arrival at Trailfinders Sports Ground in January, Rees spoke of his happiness of his move to West London.
"I'm very grateful for the opportunity presented before me and very excited for the upcoming adventures with the club. It's going to be an amazing time, filled with lessons but also success, backed with the correct effort I put into my work."
Director of Rugby Ben Ward too spoke of the excitement of having the prospect part of the Trailfinders Rugby Academy set up.
“Jared is a fantastic young and skillful talent with a particular ability to play good counter-attacking rugby. His versatility is also another quality that stood out to us here when looking at him, as he can cover at both fly-half and centre. We very much look forward to having him on board.”
