Sam Harrison (Leicester Tigers)

 

The local boy with the bright future...

A product of John Cleveland College and Hinckley RFC, scrum-half Sam Harrison made his Tigers debut in the win over Italian visitors Treviso in the Heineken Cup during 2008/09 after injuries to senior duo Harry Ellis and Julien Dupuy.

He followed club colleague Ben Youngs into the No9 shirt with England Under-20s that same season.

Harrison’s breakthrough season, though, came in 2011/12 when he was named in the squad for the Aviva Premiership Final and was shortlisted for Young Player of the Year after 18 first-team appearances.

He ended the 2012/13 campaign in the Aviva Premiership Final win at Twickenham.

An Aviva Premiership ‘A’ League winner in 2010/11, he tasted first-team action in the LV=Cup that season after graduating from the Tigers Academy.
