Leicester Tigers have signed a promising young England u20's wing from Harlequins ahead of the 2018/19 season.
Tigers have announced the signing of former England u20 wing Sam Aspland-Robinson from Premiership rivals Harlequins.
The former Wellington College student has enjoyed plenty of success in England's age groups while at Harlequins. Aspland-Robinson won the Junior World Cup and an Under-20s Grand Slam in 2016 but is yet to break into the Harlequins first team.
With England apprentice Gabriel Ibitoye, the free-scoring Charlie Walker, Samoan international Alofa Alofa and Scottish international Tim Visser all competing for regular first XV rugby with Harlequins and with Saracens wing Nathan Earle set to arrive at the stoop next season, Aspland-Robinson will look to further his ambitions of regular Premiership rugby with Leicester.
The 21-year-old Leicester bound wing can also play at fullback, centre and has a history in sevens rugby.
Tigers head coach Matt O’Connor said: “Sam has spent a lot of time in age-group representative sides and in Sevens rugby, and he has played at full-back and centre as well as on the wing.
“He is an ambitious young man who is looking for a new challenge and we look forward to seeing his continued development when he joins the Tigers squad in the summer.”
Aspland-Robinson, 21, said: “I am delighted to be joining Tigers and I’m looking forward to kicking on with the next stage of my career and working with the coaches and players there to hopefully take my game to the next level.”
