A centre from Nottingham, Ben Dickinson comes from a family of rugby players, playing alongside two brothers while at Trent College.
“One brother used to play at my local club, Nottingham Corsairs, so I went along to join him one day,” says Ben, who progressed to the Newark DPP group and on into the Tigers academy.
“I was part of the Newark DPP when I was 14 and actually played with the age group above, before progressing with my age group”, he says.
“I played all over the pitch growing up, but this has definitely helped my understanding of the game knowing my teammates roles.”
“I even remember my first visit to Welford Road – I came along with my school and we had a tour before a photo with Tom Croft.”
