Pro Rugby Team Announces Signing Of Harry Potter In Epic Fashion

Harry Potter is one hell of an athlete, we all know this, the kid put Slytherin’s quidditch team in a body bag multiple times.

As for this other Harry Potter fellow that just got signed to a pro rugby team in England, honestly, this is the first I’m hearing of him but props have to be given here.

The Leicester Tigers announced the signing of Potter with a clip from the first film, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, as the fictional Potter gets sent to Gryffindor by the sorting hat. Instead of being sent to Gryffindor, real-life Potter gets sent to Leicester.

Apologies for this atrocious joke, but Leicester will be expecting some magic from Mr. Potter.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that this Harry Potter fellow is a much better athlete than the fictional Potter played by Daniel Radcliffe. Fun fact, Radcliffe is only 5-foot-5. Another fun fact, Radcliffe is worth over $100 million.
