Although he is a player born in the 21st Century, Harrison Casey says he takes some of his rugby inspiration from a star of the 1980s and ’90s.
Academy scrum-half Harrison identifies Wallabies legend David Campese – the charismatic wing – as one of his heroes.
Harrison first played rugby with Sutton Coldfield RFC, guided there by his dad, and played at Bishop Vesey School before entering the academy system at Worcester Warriors and then Leicester. He is also an ‘A’ Level student at Uppingham School.
