Back-rower Lynx Nouwey identifies Manu Tuilagi as his favourite rugby player. “He makes a big impact on the game,” he says.
Born in Cameroon before moving to Wolverhampton, Lynx was involved in a number of sports, including athletics, before he tried rugby playing in the backs before moving into the foward pack.
After playing at Wolverhampton RFC, he moved into the Tigers DPP programme in Staffordshire and joined the club’s academy in 2018.
“Anthony Nixon watched me in year 7 and I got picked to join the programme,” he says. “It was Anthony who really pushed me along there.”
