A product of John Cleveland College and Hinckley RFC, scrum-half Sam Harrison celebrated a decade in the senior squad at Tigers during 2017/18.
He made his club debut as a teenager in the win over Italian side Treviso in the European Cup during 2008/09 after injuries to senior duo Harry Ellis and Julien Dupuy and has gone on to become a permanent fixture in the first-team squad.
A Premiership ‘A’ League winner in 2010/11, Sam gained first-team experience in the Anglo-Welsh Cup that season after graduating from the Tigers academy and followed club colleague Ben Youngs into the England Under-20s No9 shirt.
His breakthrough campaign came in 2011/12 when he was named in the matchday squad for the Premiership Final and shortlisted for Young Player of the Year after 18 first-team appearances.
He ended 2012/13 in another Premiership Final win at Twickenham and in 2014/15 was named Players’ Player of the Season and shortlisted for the supporters’ award.
In 2016/17 he started the season with two tries and kicked the crucial points as an emergency fly-half in an opening-day win at Gloucester and has become the epitome of reliability in more than 150 games in a Tigers shirt.
