Joe as a junior on the move

Joe, a product of the Wheatley Junior section is setting off on a 3 year trip teaching in Malaysia with girlfriend Jodie, Joe has been ever present in recent seasons making the switch from backrow to centre and forming a pretty solid partnership with Sanda Mapanza," Joe is everything you want in a rugby player he is all but the team and not one to say much only but when he dose everyone listens"

Joe stepped up in recent weeks switching back to the forwards and offering cover at second row with injuries to Matt Gibb and Michael Ridge leaving the team short with out fuss Joe filled in and seemed quite at home!
