Harper and Prothero to depart Loughborough Lightning

Detysha Harper and Nikita Prothero will depart Loughborough Lightning this summer after the conclusion of the 2022/23 Allianz Premier 15s season.

England international Harper, 24, made her Premier 15s debut for Lightning in September 2019 whilst a student at Loughborough University.

The prop has gone on to appear 50 times for Lightning in the league competition, with another seven Cup appearances also to her name, while also earning five Test caps with the Red Roses following her debut against Ireland in the 2020 Six Nations.

Meanwhile Prothero joined Loughborough College in September 2021 and made her Premier 15s debut against Saracens later that month.

The 21-year-old flanker made five league appearances in total and a further six in the Cup, also turning out four times for England Under-20s whilst part of the Loughborough squad.
