A product of a rich seam of talent from Norfolk rugby, Freddie Steward made his Leicester Tigers debut in 2018/19 while still part of the club’s academy system.
Freddie joined Tigers from Norwich School and was a regular at full-back as the academy team won the National Under-18 League title without losing a game in successive seasons – 2017/18 and 2018/19 – as well as gaining England Under-18 selection.
He made his senior debut in the Premiership Cup at Northampton in January 2019 and then received a late call to travel with senior squad for Premiership fixture at Sale in March of that year before being drafted on to the bench just 15 minutes before kick-off when fellow academy graduate George Worth pulled out with injury. He made his league debut as a replacement in the closing minutes of the game and joined the Development squad in the build-up to the 2019/20 campaign.
The second half of the 2019/20 season brought senior experience in Premiership and European Challenge Cup following a call-up to the England Under-20s squad in their Six Nations campaign.
