2023/24 Academy Intake Confirmed

Six talented Harlequins will link up with the senior men’s squad this summer, Josh Bellamy (fly-half), Conor Byrne (fullback), Tom Humphreys (wing), Sean Kerr (centre), Franklin McMillan (centre) and Lucas Schmid (back-row).

Head of Academy Chim Gale said: "We're delighted to welcome the next generation of Harlequins into our Academy and senior training environment. All six players are excellent young athletes, who are hugely talented and have been standout performers for their schools, clubs, and International teams."

"We have seen an outstanding trend of Quins Academy graduates take their opportunities with both hands over the last few seasons, with the likes of Marcus Smith, Cadan Murley, Jack Kenningham and Louis Lynagh establishing themselves as regular performers in the Gallagher Premiership. I have no doubt these homegrown success stories will serve as huge inspiration to our latest group of Academy players, and we're excited to watch how they develop and grow over the next 12 months."

"Finally, we must mention the huge contribution and support these players have had from their families, schools and clubs on their rugby journey to date. The six players would not be in this exciting position without their excellent guidance and support.”
