Players & Staff at The Cornish Pirates...
Good news for the Cornish Pirates confirmed near the end of the 2017/18 season that prop forward Tyler was to return to the club. Aged 23, he had signed a one-year contract for the 2018/19 season.
A proud and gifted young Cornishman, Tyler made 51 appearances for the Pirates before moving to Harlequins in January 2017, to provide cover in their front-row. Then, at the end of that season, he signed for Bristol Rugby, from where he returned to the Pirates.
Educated first at St. Hilary School and then Mounts Bay Academy, Tyler also attended Truro College where he studied BTEC Sport and completed a Level 2 City & Guilds site Carpentry course. Alongside his studies he was also a member of Truro College’s Rugby Academy team.
Rugby honours for Tyler include playing for Cornwall from under 15s to under 20s level (he received the Trelawny Army’s U20s Player of the Year award in 2014) and being a member of the South West England under 20s squad. He has also played for Exeter Chiefs Academy and whilst at Truro College competed in Dubai and Japan.
