Finlay Gibson

  • Date of Birth10 Apr 2001
  • BirthplaceKenilworth

A former prop, Finlay Gibson has settled into the middle of the front row as an aspiring hooker.

“I played tighthead through junior rugby but when I came to Tigers it was Jamie Taylor who moved me to hooker,” says Finlay.

“It’s a position that better suits my body type and I’m enjoying it. It’s a technical position but you still get your hands on the ball.”

Gibson came through the Hinckley DPP set-up at the age of 13 and has close family ties with his local club Kenilworth adding: “All my family play – cousins, brothers and my dad used to play.”
