Jacob Cusick credits Tigers DPP coaches Dave Challenger and Jason Button with a big part in his development as a player on the way to joining the club’s academy squad in 2019.
“My dad played at Macclesfield and he took me to my first club at Loughborough and I’ve played ever since,” he says.
“I played fly-half, then at full-back and centre as I got a bit bigger.
“I attended the DPP group at Hinckley where Dave Challenger and Jason Button were really supportive and helped me a lot.”
He was part of an England Rugby Under-18 North development camp during October 2020.
