#89 – Jnr Harrison

My guest this week is my former Esher Rugby teammate, Nigerian international and good friend, Jnr Harrison.

This interview was recorded in August of 2022 and we talked about Jnr’s start in adult rugby with London Nigerians, the 7’s & beach rugby circuits, Naked lunches (true story) and appearing in Rugby TV adverts.

We then moved on to talk about how Jnr got his first contract to play rugby, his incredible ability to stack on mass and the injuries that blighted a portion of his career.

Lastly, we talked about his time playing for the Nigerian national side, how he’s trying to bring through the next generation and his transition into a rugby fan with a season ticket at Saracens.


Jnr can be contacted on Twitter & Instagram @jnrharrison.
