The 19-year-old Clifton College fly-half has represented Bristol Bears from U15-U18 age groups and penned his first contract with the club last year.

The image of his older brother, Jac (5’7, 76kg) was described by Pat Lam last year as a 10 with “great potential who perfectly fits the club’s long-term plan and vision for homegrown players.”

The baby-faced standoff was named by Byron Hayward in a squad that includes returnees Connor Chapman, Efan Daniel, Nathan Evans, Dafydd Jenkins, Joe Peard and Alex Mann from last year’s competition.

“If I can compare it with years gone by, we’ve managed to have hit outs against two Premiership sides [Swansea and Ebbw Vale] so in terms of preparation it has been going really well,” said Hayward. “You’ll never be entirely happy and satisfied as a coach as you always want more time but I think we’re in a decent place going into Ireland next week.”

“They’ll be massive because that second year, and not just from a playing point of view, but from a maturity point of view as well, is massive. There’s quite a big allocation coming back and we’ll be looking to those boys to step up which they already have done, in fairness,” he said.

“I’m really excited and enthusiastic about our backs – if we can provide enough possession for our backs we’ll do some serious damage,” he said. “Our strength will be playing a game that is not structured, counter-attack and turnover ball and keeping the tempo of the game very high.”

After a fourth place finish last year, Hayward is determined his side will do better in this year’s competition.

“Our expectations are to go out and win every game we play, and I cannot see any reason why we can’t do that with the talent we have,” he said.
