Harry’s rugby dream

18 November 2021

Scrum-half Harry is hoping to be spotted by scouts as he looks to pursue a career in rugby league.

Harry, 14, has signed up to the Wigan Warriors Future’s Programme, run through the Wigan Warriors Community Foundation.

Harry plays for Leigh East and has attended the programme, with special coaching sessions, for three weeks and hopes to go on more.

“It’s a way to be recognised,” said Harry. “I have taken part in the Future’s programme every Monday for three weeks and it’s a way for coaches to spot you.

“I have played rugby all my life. My dad played rugby union for Blackburn but I prefer league.

“I know how hard it is to be scouted and it is rare but I am determined and I would love a career in rugby league.

“I also enjoy boxing.”
