From sharing in one of Leicester Tigers’ greatest moments as a fan, Dan Ormerod came through mini/junior rugby to join the club’s Developing Player Programme and then joined the academy in 2020.
Dan was in the crowd when Tigers beat world champions South Africa back in 2009, around the time he first joined Market Bosworth RFC. He attended the DPP centre at Stoneygate and then Notts Lincs and Derby.
As a county champion, Dan was part of British Swimming’s pathway programme before focusing on rugby.
He played as a fly-half, then spoke to Tigers academy coach Tom Harrison about a move into the forward pack.
He is a student at Oakham School after previously attending Loughborough Grammar.
