Injury may have disrupted his progress during the 2017/18 season, but that didn’t stop Saints’ coaches recognising Alex Coles’ huge potential and offering him his first professional contract to join the Senior Academy the following summer.
Educated at The Perse School, Coles was picked up by Saints at just 13 years old after impressing on the school stage.
Also playing his rugby at Shelford Rugby Club, the lock was awarded the Young Player of the Season by his childhood club before featuring for Cambridge RFC.
Coles has also earned international recognition, featuring for England Under-16s and Under-18s, including playing in the 2017 Under-19s international series in South Africa.
