Frankie Read

Position: No 8
Date of birth: 8 September 2001

Having converted from centre to back row throughout the 2019/20 season, Read has consistently demonstrated his ability to make line breaks between defences through his understanding of the game and excellent lines of running.

He has a real ability to create space for others and generates momentum with his ball carrying and short passing game when in heavy traffic.

He has also shown his ability to stop momentum in defence through both his tackle and work in the contact area.  A player that quietly goes about his business, Read has been a regular stand out performer for the past season at Club and school.

Having moved to Beechen Cliff for sixth form, Read will look to progress his game even further to ensure that his impressive skill set can effectively transfer to the adult game.
