Quins mak­ing moves for an­other Kiwi 10

The Rugby Paper - - Feature -

HAR­LEQUINS are try­ing to bring New Zealand U20 vice cap­tain Harry Plum­mer to the Twick­en­ham Stoop for next sea­son.

Fly-half Plum­mer, 20, who plays for the Blues where his fa­ther Mark is physio, is seen as an ideal re­place­ment for South African Demetri Ca­trak­ilis.

Ca­trak­ilis, 29, was signed from Mont­pel­lier in 2017 af­ter be­gin­ning his ca­reer in na­tive South Africa with Western Prov­ince. He missed most of last sea­son with a throat in­jury and his fu­ture at the club is un­clear.

Plum­mer, right, is highly rated in NZ and is cur­rently study­ing mar­ket­ing and man­age­ment at the Auck­land Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy.

He could ar­rive at the Stoop as part of deal that Quins signed that will see them link up with the New Zealand Rugby Union un­der the tute­lage of Nick Evans. Plum­mer can also op­er­ate at in­side-cen­tre and is very much seen as a po­ten­tial fu­ture All Black No.10.
