Harlequins second-row forward Olly Kohn has been called into the Wales squad for the forthcoming Six Nations Championship.


Harlequins lock Olly Kohn has been called into the Wales squad for the forthcoming Six Nations Championship.

Kohn, who is uncapped at international level, is one of the most experienced and respected second-row forwards playing in the Aviva Premiership. The 31-year-old committed his future to Harlequins a fortnight ago when he signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him with the club until the end of 2013/14.

Kohn joined Harlequins from Bristol in July 2006 and made his debut in the pre-season friendly with Clermont that summer. He has since made 135 appearances for the current Premiership champions and has scored four tries.

"We are delighted that Olly has been called into the Wales squad and look forward to him receiving a first international cap in the forthcoming Six Nations Championship," said Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea.
