Leicester TIgers are poised to sign wing sensation Harry Potter on an academy contract from the Melbourne Rebels, according to The Rugby Paper.
The magical 22-year-old, who broke into the Rebels senior squad this season in Australia, is eligible to represent both the Wallabies and England at senior international level.
“But it’s nothing I haven’t heard before so it’s easy to laugh it off,” Potter said.
“I’ve seen all the movies but haven’t read any of the books, which is quite disappointing for a lot of people because they make jokes I don’t understand.”
The speedster moved to Bristol in his youth before moving again, this time abroad to Melbourne, Victoria, Australia when he was 10-years-old.

The All Blacks star was reportedly in ‘advanced talks’ with Tigers over a proposed move in 2017 according to The Rugby Paper. When asked about the transfer, the 22-year-old avoided the question, which only fuelled speculation, but the deal was never complete with McKenzie eventually signing a new deal to stay in New Zealand.
