Another hot young local prospect, Fraser Honey from the Cornish All Blacks, has joined the Cornish Pirates Player Development Foundation (PDF).
Aged 19, Fraser is a fly-half/full-back who last season played for the Cornish All Blacks in National Two.
His honours include playing for Cornwall at under 17 and under 18 levels, plus helping Hartpury College to AASE League Championship success in 2015. He studied for a BTEC there in level-three rugby and also received a call-up for the Welsh Exiles ‘Sevens’ team.
Delighted to welcome Fraser as a member of the club’s important PDF, Cornish Pirates coach Gavin Cattle said: “Fraser is another local lad who is a welcomed addition to the PDF. The exposure to a professional environment will help him develop his game sense, where he can apply an already well developed skill set.”
The PDF has become instrumental in developing the senior squad from within and the furthering the aim to have a majority of Cornish players in the squad.
We hope that even more will not only see the fruits of the PDF, but the rationale in the Cornish Pirates championing this route for young talent.
Fundraising for the PDF is ongoing and your contribution will be invaluable.
Cheques should be made payable to: Friends of Cornish Rugby and addressed to:
