Harlequins can today confirm that lock Hugh Tizard will leave the Club at the end of the season

With 27 appearances to date, the 21-year-old leaves Quins following a seven-year relationship with the Club, having joined the full-time training programme with the senior team in the 2018/19 season and making his senior debut in the Famous Quarters in October 2019.

Commenting on his move, Tizard said: “I want to thank everyone at Quins for all their support and friendship over the years. I’m proud to have come through the system here and gone all the way to winning a Premiership title.

“I’m excited for the new challenge to come next season, but I’m equally as excited to play my part in finishing this campaign with Quins. We’ve started the season well and I’m looking forward to seeing how far we can go.”

Senior Coach Tabai Matson said: “While it’s always sad to see a member of the team move on, we wish Hugh nothing but the absolute best in his next step at the end of the season.

“Tiz is a valued person and player within our group and we’re looking forward to working with him throughout the rest of the season as this squad looks to continue making history, with full focus on tomorrow’s Cardiff match.”

Cadan Murley says people forget how young the squad is at Quins and that there is so much more to come from this group of players.

Will Evans says it's the best environment he's been a part of in rugby which made it an easy decision to sign a new deal.
