Definitely missing from last season’s championship winning squad will be fly half Harry O’Brien who is off to University (but is available for the first couple of games) and red haired Irish flanker Stephen Todd who has retuned to Northern Ireland after his year out. Winger Nyle Beckett is spending the first few months of the season in the States whilst centre Matt Holton will miss the season with that bad injury he sustained at Earlsdon. It is hoped to welcome back Andy Whitehall in mid season after his bad injury and although moving to Oxford it may be that Tom Nicholson may still make himself available. Phil Dickson is also back after his year out last year.
Definite new signings to date include Warwick Medical Students Tom Badcock (flanker), winger Paddy Holton, prop Jack Hurst, and full back Kit Harvey. Centre Tim Wilson has joined from Loughborough and winger/full back Josh Hickman has come from Warwick School. Our captain’s brother Ollie Cresswell, also a hooker, has also signed on. Centre Joe Yeomanson, scrum half Joe Ballinger, hooker Mat Gibson and flanker Michael Jones have all graduated from our Colts squad of last season.
