Harlequins have announced that lock Hugh Tizard will be leaving the Gallagher Premiership club at the end of the ongoing season.

The 21-year-old made his senior debut with Harlequins in October 2019 and has gone on to make 27 appearances for them. He was also part of the side that clinched the Premiership title in the 2020/21 season.

“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," he told the club's official website.

“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 had high praises for Tizard and is hoping for him to finish the campaign with the Quins on a high.

“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.”
