Alex mainly played football as a youngster and it was not until the age of 16 whilst at Lord Wandsworth College in Hampshire that he found a serious passion for rugby.
His first taste of club rugby was with Camberley RFC where former ‘Pirate’ Rhodri McAtee - one of Alex’s sporting influences - played in his youth.
Appreciating the support of many people who have been influential in enabling him to progress in rugby, Alex highlights the efforts of his parents, plus friends and family in general.
