When did you first play?

I played a little in London, then we moved to Dorset when I was seven or eight and I played at North Dorset rugby club and Port Regis School. I enjoyed running around as much as possible, so I preferred rugby to cricket.

When did you join Bath?

I came into the academy around the age of 13 or 14. Now I’m here full-time.

Who helps you improve?

Everyone in the Bath squad is awesome, but Ollie Devoto was at my school and he is very helpful.

You were born in Wales, were you tempted to play for them, not England?

No. Mum is Welsh but I’ve lived in England all my life.

What was the highlight of your England U18 year?

Beating South Africa on tour. They beat us last year but we played our best game this time.

What are your aims now?

To play as many Bath United games as possible and retain the A league title. I also want to get some LV= Cup games and play for England U20.

RW verdict: After an unbeaten year in the centre for England U18, this 19-year-old has success to build on.
