Growing up in France and Spain before moving to Leicester, fly-half Harry Glynn has a cosmopolitan view of rugby, taking his first steps in the game as a three-year-old at the Uselle club in France and naming All Blacks star Beauden Barrett as his hero.
Harry played for Market Harborough RFC and Leicester Grammar School on his way into the Tigers academy and says: “Troy Thacker, Jamie Taylor and Diccon Edwards have all been important to me as coaches,” he says. “They’ve been good to work with.”
Twin sister Elizabeth is enjoying sporting success too, playing cricket at county level.
