Will is a recent addition to the Tigers set-up joining from his local club Nottingham Corsairs under a year ago. The 16 year old second row already stands at 203cm and has learnt a lot from Jamie Taylor and the academy team.

“In less than a year, I’ve already learnt even more about my job as a second row as well as the detail I need to add to my game,” he says.

“My club coach at Corsairs Andy Stout helped shape my knowledge of the game, so it’s been a fast learning curve in my short time here.

Will followed his brother into rugby, adding: “I actually started out as a winger. I then played at prop before falling in at second row and with players such as Martin Johnson, the club is a hugely inspiring place.”
