Lewis Ludlam attended St Joseph’s College in Northampton, beginning his rugby career at Ipswich before joining Colchester.
Despite being initially released by the Club a few years ago, Ludlam's tenacity and talent not only led to him being recalled for Saints’ Under-18s, but move up into the Senior Academy on a full-time basis.
Originally a centre, he has now found a home in the back row for both Club and country.
Ludlam was awarded the man-of-the-match award on his England Under-18s debut, and was named the Red Rose's Player of the Tournament in the 2015 World Rugby Under-20s Championship, when they made the final.
Breaking into the first-team squad in the 2016/17 season during the Anglo-Welsh Cup, Ludlam put in some big performances for both Saints and the Wanderers, scooping back-to-back Premiership Rugby A League titles in 2017 and 2018.
His first try for the first team came against Saracens at the London Double Header at the start of the 2017/18 season, during which he made nine appearances – including a European Champions Cup debut.
