Jack Walker signed for Bath Rugby from Yorkshire Carnegie for the start of the 2016/17 season.
The hooker captained Bath on two occasions in the Premiership Rugby Cup with a strong contribution to the outcome of securing 51 out of 53 line-outs in the four fixtures. A strong leader and communicator, Walker has traditionally influenced the game through his attacking qualities as a ball carrier and ball player, his ongoing impact in defence this season to date is something that’s developed, alongside his role within the set-piece in what is becoming a young and dominant pack of forwards in the Premiership.
Walker was part of the England U20 squad that won the Junior World Championship title in 2014, alongside Bath Rugby Academy product Charlie Ewels. He followed that feat by helping England win the title again in 2016.
In 2013, at 17 years and 160 days, Walker became the youngest forward to appear for Carnegie when he featured against Bristol Rugby in the IPA Greene King Championship. He also became the club’s youngest captain at 18 years and 256 days when he led the side against London Scottish early last year.
