Player biography


Youngest brother of fellow senior squad member Ross, James Chisholm joined the full-time Harlequins Academy in July 2013 and made his senior debut that same year against Exeter Chiefs in the LV= Cup. The back row made his starting debut a week later, and played the full 80 minutes in the victory over Sale Sharks in the same competition. He has since made 73 appearances for the Club.


The Haywards Heath-born Number 8 signed for Harlequins from Brighton College and captained England U18s to victory in the FIRA European tournament that year.  He went onto represent England Under 20s during the 2014 Six Nations and won the Junior World Championship later that season. In 2015, James helped the U20s secure the Six Nations title before being named as the World Rugby U20 Championship Player of the Year.

In 2016/17, Chisholm enjoyed more personal success, being named IG Players’ Player of the Season, DHL Player of the Season and Nick Duncombe Young Player of the Season at the Club's End of Season Awards ceremony after scoring 6 tries in 24 appearances. 

2017/18 was similarly prolific for the dynamic back rower, again winning the DHL Player of the Season award and also being awarded the captaincy for Quins' Anglo-Welsh Cup campaign - a responsibility that he took on in 2019/20 in the absence of the Club's Co-Captains, Chris Robshaw and recently retired James Horwill. 

Off the pitch, James has a coaching role at Farnham RFC alongside fellow quin Max Crumpton.
