Harry Thacker

18th Feb 1994 1.74m/94kg Hooker

Son of former Leicester Tigers hooker Troy Thacker, Harry passed through Leicester Grammar School and had a breakthrough season in 2015/16 playing in the semi-finals of the Aviva Premiership and European Cup.

His score against Northampton Saints was also named Try of the Season in the Premiership Awards and was a nomination for LV= Young Player of the Year in the RPA Awards and picked up a Green Flag Forward of the Month award in a campaign which brought 23 appearances and four tries.

He was named as the club’s Player of the Month on two occasions during the 2015/16 season and also picked up the supporters’ Young Player of the Year award for a second time.

Thacker became a key squad member for Leicester Tigers before confirming that he would leave the club at the end of the 2017/18 season to join Bristol.

In an impressive debut season that included a hat-trick versus Wasps and a scintillating brace versus Tigers, Thacker was listed in the Guardian team of the year.
