A Leicester Tigers academy graduate, Harry Wells returned to the club for the 2016/17 season after gaining senior experience over two seasons with Bedford Blues.

After joining the Tigers academy from school in Peterborough, Wells made his first-team debut as a replacement in a Cup win over Wasps in 2012/13 and had spells with Nottingham and Loughborough Students as well as at Bedford.

He spent the final month of the 2012/13 campaign with the Clermont Auvergne Academy as part of a club exchange and then shared in World Junior Championships victory for England Under-20s alongside Tigers colleagues Tom Price and Henry Purdy.

Wells, who plays at lock or back row, was also part of the Tigers squad that reached the finals of the Premiership Sevens in 2013.

The Peterborough-born Wells played in all six games in Leicester's successful Anglo-Welsh Cup 2016/17 campaign as well as making his first start in the Premiership in an away win over Harlequins at the end of February.

Wells, who can play at lock or flanker, was also part of the Tigers squad that reached the finals of the Premiership Sevens in 2013 and played in every game in the successful Anglo-Welsh Cup campaign in 2016/17 before agreeing a new contract at the club and firmly establishing himself in the senior squad.

His 29 appearances during 2018/19 was the highest by any member of the first-team squad.

Wells was initially named as a member of the England 36 man summer training squad on 10 June 2021. Wells then went on to make his international debut for England on 10 July 2021 against Canada at Twickenham.

Wells played as a replacement in the 2022 Premiership Rugby final as Tigers beat Saracens 15-12.
