Kieran Treadwell to leave Harlequins

Harlequins can announce today (Friday 22nd January) that Academy second row Kieran Treadwell will leave the Club at the end of the current season to join Guinness Pro 12 side Ulster.

Commenting on the news, Director of Rugby, Conor O’Shea said: "We are disappointed to lose such a talent as Kieran, but we understand that his Irish qualification and the age profile of some of our locks Sam Twomey (23), Charlie Matthews (24), George Merrick (23) and Stan South (19) all contributed to his decision.

"Everyone at Harlequins wishes Kieran the very best of luck with Ulster and I know that he will be fully focused with us for the remainder of the season."
 
Treadwell joined the full-time Harlequins Academy for the 2014/15 season. The six foot seven lock made his senior debut for the Club while in the Elite Player Development Group, coming on as a replacement during Harlequins’ LV= Cup match against Cardiff Blues in 2014. He has since made five senior appearances for the Club.

The former John Fisher School pupil represented England at Under 20 level, winning the 2015 U20 Six Nations.
 
Commenting on the move, the 20 year-old said: "I have been associated with Harlequins since I was 16 and as a result, my decision to leave was a difficult one. I would like to thank the Club for their support in developing me into the player I am today and for their understanding of the decision I’ve made.

"The coming months with Harlequins will be hugely exciting and I’m looking forward to helping them finish the season on a high before I begin the next stage of my career with Ulster."
