After starting out in minis rugby at Colchester RFC, Charlie Titcombe joined Stamford RFC when his family moved to the East Midlands and came into the Tigers academy in 2018 from the DPP centre at Stoneygate.
“It felt a bit surreal to start with, to be honest, when you come in and you’re training with all the best guys from all different schools,” he recalls. “But it’s pretty cool and I think it gets even better as we’ve got older.”
A keen hockey player, Charlie also played social cricket and tennis before focusing on his rugby.
Getting to know you

If you could play alongside any rugby player in the world, who would it be?
Owen Farrell – but he’d be at 12 so I could play at 10!
What do you like most about rugby compared with other sports?
I like the build-up before a game and the atmosphere among the lads after a good win, with all that excitement.
