Previously a NSW Waratahs’ supplementary squad contract, Harry Jones will form part of the team’s Extended Playing Squad in 2017 after receiving a promotion last year following his great form in both the Shute Shield and Buildcorp NRC.
Looking to make his Super Rugby debut in 2017, the 20-year-old northern beaches born born utility back was recognised at the 2016 Sydney Rugby Union Awards as this year’s leading try-scorer in the Shute Shield with 16 tries, just one ahead of fellow NSW Waratahs extended playing squad member, Sydney University halfback Jake Gordon.
He backed up with a stellar Buildcorp NRC campaign with semi-finalists, the Sydney Rays, crossing for six tries and racking up over 570 metres in total.
Jones has been a committed member of the Warringah Rats since Under 10s level after playing his junior years with the Newport Breakers.
He made his First Grade debut for the Rats in the Shute Shield in 2014, the same year he represented in the Australian Youth Olympics and NSW Waratahs Sevens World Series teams.
A product of the NSW Rugby pathways, as a member of the Waratahs’ Gen Blue U20s in 2014 and 2015, Jones was also part of the Australian Schoolboys in 2012 and 2013.
Off the field Jones is studying a Bachelor of Health & Movement at ACPE.
