Past, Present and Future: Here is your opportunity to pay tribute to those who play the same position as yourself.
Past: John Smit - His leadership qualities are something for everyone to aspire too. Leading his country to a world cup and being able to play along the whole front row at international level is something that not many players can do.
Present: Tom Youngs - The amount of work he gets through on the pitch is incredible. The amount of carries, tackles and work around the breakdown really stands out. To go from making first premiership start at hooker to starting in a lions test matches shows what quality he has.
Future: Scott Spurling - Through training with Scott you can see the talent that he has. Whenever he gets his hands on the ball you know he is going to make something happen. You don’t see this very often in hookers and therefore he is a player for everyone to keep their eye on.
