Harrison Courtney joined Edinburgh Rugby in 2021, making his debut for the club from the bench against the Dragons.
The loosehead prop grew up in Hamilton, New Zealand, and got involved in rugby at Fraser Tech where he played until he went to high school. He went on to captain the Hamilton Boys’ High School First XV, and played in the Sanix World Rugby Youth Invitational event in Japan.
Courtney earned a scholarship to Lincoln University in Christchurch to continue his rugby while studying for a Bachelor of Sport and Recreation Management.
Harrison trained with Canterbury, making an appearance for them towards the tail end of the 2019 season against Wellington in the Mitre 10 Cup semi-final, before moving to Scotland to join Watsonians.
The loosehead prop made his Edinburgh Rugby debut from the bench in the bonus-point win over Dragons in November’s United Rugby Championship win.
Courtney made his first start for the capital in March 2022’s defeat away against Glasgow Warriors.
