The Cornish Pirates can confirm that their talented lock/backrower Josh Caulfield has departed the club following the end of the season.
Taunton-born Josh, now aged 24, is a former England under 20s player who first arrived at Pirates ahead of the 2016/17 season when dual registered with Exeter Chiefs.
Following his first season associated with the Pirates, Josh was dual registered again in both 2017/18 and 2018/19, and, from January onwards, in 2019/20. Then, in May 2020 came the welcome news that he had signed a two-year contract with the Cornish Pirates.
In total, Josh accumulated 105 appearances for the club. He was also this past season presented with the Players’ Player of the Year trophy plus the President’s Cup for being, in the club President’s opinion, the most outstanding contributor on the field during the season.
Cornish Pirates’ joint head coach Alan Paver, who is sorry to see Josh go, has commented:
“When Josh first arrived, he was a very young man and throughout we have been fortunate to have had him.
“His presence has been huge for us on the field, and he will inevitably be missed in the engine room, remembering though that he can play either in the second row or at ‘6’.
“Sorry to see Josh go, at the same time we all wish him well with his next step and I do feel that Premiership rugby is probably the logical progression for him.”
