Henry Taylor captained the 1st XV in the 2011 season, where he helped the side win over 80% of their matches as well as winning two rugby seven tournaments. Henry signed for Harlequins straight from School, joining the likes of former Cranleigh pupils Will Collier, Sam Smith and Seb Stegmann at the Quins.

He is currently studying Art at Loughborough University as well as continuing his professional career with Saracens. Henry represented England at U18 level and played in three of the five Six Nations matches this winter.  Henry is one of many former Cranleigh pupils who are playing professional rugby since leaving the School and his achievements have led to real inspiration for the current pupils here.

We as a School wish him all the best in the tournament.
