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, who is in his second spell with the club, made his debut for the Cornish Pirates as a replacement back in December 2012, when he impressed in a 30-10 points British & Irish Cup win away to Swansea. Although injuries at times disrupted his progress he would prove a scintillating runner who scored some super tries. Indeed, he was our ‘Try of the Season’ award winner in both 2014 and 2016.
Impressing playing mainly at full-back through the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons, with his try-scoring exploits also again on show, he for the two years on the trot picked up both the ‘Player of the Year’ and the ‘Supporters Player of the Year’ awards. Then, after having made 136 appearances for the Cornish Pirates, he initially signed for Premiership side Gloucester Rugby on a short-term deal in November 2020, and on the back of several impressive performances, put pen to paper on a full-time contract early in January 2021.
In total, Kyle made 43 appearances for the ‘Cherry & Whites’, before making a welcome return to the Pirates ahead of the 2023/24 season.
