As Eagle #495, Harrison Gordon Higgins join Rugby ATL with international experience and a passion for rugby. Born in Brisbane Australia, Harry first picked up the pill at the young age of 4 years old. His home club, the Brisbane West’s Bulldogs prepared him to take to the stage in the United States when he began playing for the Austin Blacks in Texas when Head Coach at Arkansas State University, Matthew Huckaby recruited Higgins to the program.
After back to back National Championships in 2012 & 2013, Higgins finished his degree in the Big Apple while playing for Old Blue RFC and the North East Academy under Marty Veale (current RUNY Forwards coach). Higgins then debuted for the USA Eagles XV in June of 2016 against Italy in San Jose, California prior to moving back to Australia.
Higgins comes with an abundance of experience competing on the international stage and will look to bring his professional presence to the Rugby ATL franchise. When he is not on the pitch, modeling for YP threads or in front of the camera, he enjoys playing with his dog Bella. “
