Players & Staff at The Cornish Pirates...
A product of Penzance & Newlyn RFC’s youth section, Kyle was part of a talented group, including such as Luke Cowan-Dickie and Jack Nowell.
Educated at Mounts Bay School and then Truro College, his early senior rugby was played with the Pirates Amateurs, St. Ives, and then in 2011/12 the Cornish All Blacks, which was the same season that he received the Cornwall U20s ‘Player of the Year’ award.
Kyle made his debut for the Cornish Pirates in December 2012, when he came off the bench and confidently showed some good touches in a 30-10 points British & Irish Cup win away to Swansea. Involved in a bit of history, it was the first time that the Pirates had won a match in Wales since their first visit way back in 1949.
Injuries have at times disrupted his progress, but when fully fit he has proven himself a scintillating runner who has scored some super tries. Indeed, he was the ‘Try of the Season’ award winner in both 2014 and 2016.
By the end of the 2017/18 campaign, during which he continued his try-scoring exploits, Kyle had made 102 appearances for the club. He also, at the end of the season, worthily picked up a number of annual awards.
