Josh grew up in West Yorkshire playing rugby from the age of 7 for Ilkley Rugby Club. He played all through school up to 1st XV and has played for an intra-mural side at university for 4 years. He will be graduating from Edinburgh a matter of days before heading out to Africa to join the Pride.

Proud achievement

Coordinating a touch rugby match with 30 boys aged 8 to 10 at a school in Catalonia, Spain. They were new to the game and didn’t like some of the rules!

Josh’s goal

“I am really motivated to tackle rugby coaching in Africa and experience the continent for the first time. I have been privileged to travel extensively and new places always excite me.”
