Higgins arrives at the club following a successful spell with his hometown club and All-Ireland League champions Cork Constitution.
The 25-year-old Munster age-grade grad enjoyed five strong AIL-level seasons after graduating from Christian Brothers College. The Irishman helped lead Cork to four Munster Senior Cup titles along with AIL titles in both 2017 and 2019.
The former Munster ‘A’ Player of the Year had signed to play with Rugby United New York ahead of last year’s MLR season, but was not able to feature for the Roosters before the 2020 campaign was cut short.
While born and raised in Ireland, Higgins also holds Canadian citizenship and remains eligible for Canadian selection; he will be designated as a domestic player.
