Huddersfield born, Harry joined the Rhinos Scholarship in 2014. He is a former pupil at Holmfirth High School and played for Newsome Panthers. He made his debut during the 2017 season against Wigan and was rewarded with more game time in 2018.
He spent time on dual registration with Featherstone in 2018 where he was in sensational form, scoring 16 tries in 12 games. For 2019, Newman broke into the first team, making 22 starts throughout the campaign. Starting away at Hull FC, and with Kallum Watkins departing for Gold Coast Titans midway through the season, the centre soon became a regular on the team sheet alongside Tom and Luke Briscoe and earned the club’s Young Player of the Year award. For 2020, he was rewarded with the number three shirt.
As well as playing Rugby League Harry has also represented West Yorkshire in Rugby Union and Kirklees in Athletics. In 2013 he came second in the 300m in the Y10 Athletics Yorkshire Games. He was recently named in the England Youth side. His childhood hero was Jonny Wilkinson and apart from supporting the Rhinos he also follows West Ham. Harry’s ambition after he has finished playing rugby is to own business and he says the biggest influence on his career has been his dad.
