The 28-year-old full-back, who can also play on the wing, has scored 35 tries in over 80 appearances during a three-and-a-half-year spell with Coventry.

"James has good experience and will add more depth to our back three for the remainder of the season," Exiles director of rugby Declan Kidney said.external-link
