Tom Youngs is amongst those who will be inducted into the Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame this year.

Tom, alongside Matt Banahan and Brad Barritt, will be honoured at the Gallagher Premiership Final this weekend with the Twickenham crowd given the opportunity to show their appreciation for the 2023 inductees at half-time.

Tom Youngs made over 150 Premiership appearances during a fifteen-year career, earned 28 England caps and three British and Irish Lions test caps on the 2013 tour of Australia.

The hooker won his first Premiership Rugby title in 2013 and was a member of the squad who won the title last season.

Youngs took indefinite leave from rugby in 2021 but the club captain’s impact was still felt throughout the season and he was welcomed to the stage to lift the Premiership Trophy alongside teammates at Twickenham.

Phil Winstanley, Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby, said: “The 2023 inductees to the Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame have been outstanding rugby players who made a monumental contribution to the success of their Clubs and England.

“Beyond their brilliance on the pitch, all three are also great people and have been terrific ambassadors for the Premiership and our sport over many years.

“We will be honoured to welcome Matt, Brad and Tom, and their families, to the Gallagher Premiership Final this Saturday, and we look forward to witnessing the Twickenham crowd show its appreciation for three of the league’s true greats at half-time.”
