Rising through Northampton's Academy ranks, Jack Hughes signed his first professional contract with the Club ahead of the 2019/20 season.
After impressing throughout the 2018/19 campaign in Saints' Under-18s, the prop's elusive nature around the park and talent in the scrum earned him a spot in the England Under-17s and Under-18s squads in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
But on signing full-time with Saints, Hughes made the switch to hooker and just months after making Franklin's Gardens home, Hughes featured in Black, Green and Gold for the first time at the Premiership Rugby 7s tournament in Northampton.
And the switch of position did not halt Hughes' progress, with the young hooker continuing to impress for Wanderers in the Premiership Rugby Shield throughout 2019/20, before turning out for Saints in their 2020/21 preseason friendly against Worcester Warriors.
