A talented rugby player at Monmouth School for Boys has been named in the new academy intake at English Premiership club, Worcester Warriors.
Theo (pictured) captained Warriors Under-18s in the Premiership Rugby Under-18 Academy League during the season.
He was selected to play for England Under-18s but was prevented from playing in the Six Nations competition after breaking his wrist while leading Monmouth School for Boys into the Vase semi-finals at the prestigious Rosslyn Park Sevens.
After an outstanding couple of days, Theo and the Monmouth boys showed character and resilience at Rosslyn Park to reach the last four before bowing out to a strong Stowe School side, which went on to lift the trophy.
Theo, who was the school 1st XV captain last term and is Head Boy at Monmouth, is one of only five players named in the new Three Pears Warriors intake.
Although Theo has played most of his rugby at number eight for the school and Monmouth Rugby Club, he can also operate at openside flanker.
Theo’s selection is wonderful news for Monmouth School for Boys and follows on from school team-mate Joe having signed professional terms with Bristol Bears’ senior academy for next season.
Joe, a centre, is currently the Deputy Head Boy, and was also named in the England Under-18s rugby squad, only to miss out through injury.
