When Will Muir set out to study Mechanical Engineering at Northumbria University, he had a vision of working overseas in Dubai or Singapore.
He achieved that dream, albeit not in the field he saw himself heading towards. His Sevens rugby talents saw him travel the globe and experience different cities from a sporting aspect as opposed to a designer of power-producing machines.
Muir had limited Sevens experience when he began his University degree and was introduced to the code during his second year.
Playing in small tournaments across England, he was part of a successful side which won the National University BUCS tournament and thereafter, they were invited to competitions where RFU bosses could scan for potential rare finds – of which Muir turned out to be one of.
A week after graduating, Muir’s rugby dreams were realised as he was straight on a plane to San Francisco, USA for the 2018 Rugby World Cup Sevens tournament at Major League Baseball franchise San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park.
Nicknamed the Horse for his gait, he was named 2019 England Sevens Men’s Player of the Year – the first male player to win the award in their first season of England Sevens - and scored two tries in his country’s opening 2019/20 World Sevens Series event as they secured bronze in one of his previously preferred living destinations, Dubai.
The proud Yorkshireman has since transferred his try-scoring skills to the XVs game with Bath Rugby. Joining ahead of the 2020/21 Gallagher Premiership campaign, the wing scored seven tries in his first 12 Premiership appearances before carrying that form into 2021/22.
