William Elsmore was introduced to rugby by his dad at Dudley Kingswinford RFC as an eight-year-old before moving to Wolverhampton RFC.
Playing in various places in the forward pack before settling on either side of the front row, he joined the Tigers’ Deveeloping Player Centre at Stourbridge and entered the academy in 2020/21.
His family mainly played football and cricket rather than rugby, but William still plays cricket at the Himley club outside of his rugby commitments.
