A scrum-half also comfortable at full-back or on the wing, Leicester Tigers academy graduate Harry Simmons is another young player to join the club from the Norfolk area.
Educated at Gresham’s School, he played his age-group rugby at Holt RFC and represented Norfolk, Eastern Counties and London & South-East but missed out on an England Under-16 cap due to injury.
He joined Tigers from school and progressed to the development squad in 2016/17 while also gaining senior experience in National One with Loughborough Students and in the Premiership ‘A’ League.
A first-team debut followed in November 2017 and at the end of the term he was chosen as Young Player of the Year by his team-mates.
From a sporting family, his dad Mark captained Holt, Norfolk and Eastern Counties while Harry’s two brothers have also represented the county.
Harry also represented Norfolk in the National Athletics Championships, winning gold in the long jump plus silver medals at 100 and 800 metres. He also played county hockey and gained selection for the Norwich City FC academy.
