Shaun Allsopp played hooker for his local club Old Coventrians RFC before moving into the Leicester Tigers DPP set-up.
“I wasn’t in the programme long and also played at county level so I was playing a lot of rugby,” Shaun says. “Like most of the lads here, I was brought up in a rugby family, first playing touch rugby as a four-year-old.”
The young hooker was also not a bad footballer either, playing for Birmingham City FC’s academy at the age of nine before choosing to focus on his rugby.
Getting to know you
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
I’ve have a super-stretch power, so I could reach anywhere on the pitch.
What three things would you want if you were stuck in a desert island?
I’d take my phone, my charger and of course, a rugby ball.
