Harries back again for 2017-18

Will Harries has become the latest player to sign on for Ealing Trailfinders for the 2017-18 Greene King IPA Championship season.

The fullback or wing is one of Ealing Trailfinders’ highest-profile players having been capped three times for Wales and been a regular for their sevens team, including at the Glasgow 2014, Commonwealth Games. 

This season the 30-year-old has scored seven tries in 18 appearances, including a sensational individual effort against Yorkshire Carnegie in the play-off semifinals.

“The club is moving in the right direction and is a good club to be a part of,” Harries said. “We've done some good things this season and we have the chance to kick on next season and strive for further success.

“The supporters are always great and playing at Vallis Way is always an enjoyable experience.”

He joined Ealing Trailfinders early in the 2014-15 season and helped the team to the National 1 title. In the 2015-16 season he scored one try in 11 appearances before injury curtailed his season. 

Prior to signing on for Ealing Trailfinders Harries played for Newport Gwent Dragons and the Cardiff native has also played for Northampton Saints and Bedford Blues.”

“Will has put in some strong performances this season, especially after Christmas,” Director of Rugby Ben Ward said. “I’m sure the supporters will be just as delighted as myself to see him back next year as he is an exciting runner with the ball, has a great step and can beat defenders. 

“He also brings a lot of experience and is a top professional in the way he conducts himself both on and off the field. He will add to our options in the back three and it will certainly be a competitive area for us.”
