From his family home in Wolverhampton and school at Ellesmere College in Shropshire, Lynx Noumey combined rugby with a passion for athletics and contemporary dance.
Competing in the 100 metres, sprint relay, hurdles and shot putt, Lynx reached national schools’ championship level before focusing on rugby.
He started out at Wolverhampton RFC, where coach Scott Thompson played a big role in his progress, and reached the Tigers academy after coming through the DPP ranks.
Originally a flanker, Lynx moved forward into the front row for the start of his under-18 year and hopes to follow in the footsteps of Ellis Gene in making a success of a move to prop.
Getting to know you
Growing up, it was Manu Tuilagi, lately I’d say Ellis Genge, I like his style of play. He brings that energy to his game.
What do you like most about rugby?
It’s the atmosphere and the unity of the players. As an athlete, you are pretty much on your own, or just you and your coach, but with rugby it is a real team effort.
What are your earliest memories of Tigers?
I’ve been to quite a few games, I think the first was against Wasps in 2013.
