A Leicester Tigers academy graduate, Harry Wells returned to the club for the 2016/17 season after gaining senior experience over two seasons with Bedford Blues.

After joining the Tigers academy from school in Peterborough, Wells made his first-team debut as a replacement in a Cup win over Wasps in 2012/13 and had spells with Nottingham and Loughborough Students as well as at Bedford.

He spent the final month of the 2012/13 campaign with the Clermont Auvergne Academy as part of a club exchange and then shared in World Junior Championships victory for England Under-20s alongside Tigers colleagues Tom Price and Henry Purdy.

Wells, who plays at lock or back row, was also part of the Tigers squad that reached the finals of the Premiership Sevens in 2013.

The Peterborough-born Wells played in all six games in Leicester's successful Anglo-Welsh Cup 2016/17 campaign as well as making his first start in the Premiership in an away win over Harlequins at the end of February.

In March 2017, the second-row forward agreed to new contract terms at Leicester Tigers.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Wells has had 2 Champions Cup appearances.
