Thankyou for taking the time to check my website. I hope it helps you understand Rugby Commando School and what we do a little better…

I am a current serving elite Royal Marine Commando and I have been lucky enough to be in the armed forces for over 12 years. I have served across the world and participated in several operations in various countries.

I am currently serving as a Corporal, and received a Combined Forces Commendation for bravery during my service on Op Herrick 9. I have an array of experiences in various contexts and have trained in jungle, arctic and desert terrains.

Whilst I have been in the military, I have been given the opportunity to play rugby to a very high standard. Rugby has been in my blood since I was 4 years old so, upon joining the military at age 20, I also joined the Royal Marines Rugby League team, receiving ‘The Man of Steel’ award for exceptional performance. In 2013, I got scouted for the Royal Navy Rugby Union squad and since then, my rugby career has continued to soar. I received the Cossack Sword for best player, Man of The Match during an annual Army Vs Navy match at Twickenham, and a nomination for Sportsman of the Year in

I got selected for Combined Services Rugby (the best players from the Navy, Army and RAF sides) and have played in the squad for 5 consecutive years. I received Man of The Match for great performance in 2018.

Aside from the military rugby, I have continued to play in the civic world too; I currently play for National One?! team Fylde and have represented Lancashire County, as well as England Counties during an International tour of Canada. I trialed at Saracens and played 3 games for Premiership team Newcastle Falcons in the Kings of the North competition.
