Nick David to join Harlequins

Warriors full-back/wing Nick David is to join Harlequins at the end of the current season.

David, a product of the Three Pears Warriors Academy, has been recruited by Harlequins challenge for the number 15 jersey.

“We are sorry to see Nick leave the club, but fully understand the opportunity which he has at Harlequins to play in his favoured position of full-back,” said Warriors Director of Rugby Alan Solomons.

“Nick will always be welcome here at Sixways and we wish him all the very best for the future.”

David, 22, joined the Senior Academy at Sixways ahead of the 2017/18 season having impressed playing for Warwick School.

He made his senior debut against Saracens in the Premiership Rugby Cup in November 2018 and marked his Gallagher Premiership debut with a try against Bath Rugby at Sixways in February 2020.

He scored another try the following week against Bristol Bears and has now scored eight tries in 28 appearances with the majority of those coming on the wing.

David is currently sidelined by a shoulder injury which he sustained against Bath at The Rec last month.

“I have an emotional attachment to this place having come through the Academy. I joined when I was 14 so I have come up through the ranks with quite a few of the lads who are now in the first team,” David said.

“I am going to miss them and all the lads have I met on my journey up to this point. I am very grateful for everything that everyone here has done for me and I will be forever in their debt and I wish them all the best for the future.

“I’d also like to say a massive thank you to the supporters. This last couple of seasons have not been normal owing to COVID-19 but they have been missed by the players.

“I am going to miss them and I thank them for their fantastic support. We are looking forward to having them back before the end of the season and I am going to miss them when I leave.”
