Leicester Tigers have agreed a new deal with second-rower Harry Wells.

The 27-year-old Wells has made 92 senior appearances for the club since his debut in 2013 as a teenager.

The Tigers academy graduate played his 50th Premiership match for the club earlier this season and is currently equal with George Worth for most games (21) during the 2019/20 campaign.

The Peterborough-born lock represented England at Under-20s level in 2013 as part of the Junior World Cup-winning squad.

After graduating from the Tigers Academy, Wells spent time on loan at Nottingham Rugby and Bedford Blues in the Championship, as well as with Loughborough Students, before returning to the club for the 2016/17 season.

Capable of playing in the back, as well as at lock, Wells was a member of the Tigers squad that reached the finals of the Premiership Sevens in 2013 and featured in every fixture during the successful Anglo-Welsh Cup campaign in the 2016/17 season.

Speaking about the renewed deal, Leicester Tigers Director of Rugby Geordan Murphy said: “Wellsy bleeds red, white and green. Every time he pulls on a Tigers shirt, he leaves nothing on the pitch and he is committed to seeing the club get back to where it belongs.

“He has played more than 70 games in the past three seasons and I am excited that we will continue to see Wellsy running around for Tigers.

“We want players at Tigers who are committed to the journey and the tough work we know is required and Wellsy represents that.”
