Sam Elrick

Position: Hooker
Honours: Italy U20s

Height: 177cm (5' 10")

Sam joined twin brother Simone in the Bath Rugby Academy ahead of the 2018/19 season. The hooker, who has been with the Club for past four seasons made the step-up to the senior Academy having been involved in the Premiership Rugby A League and U18 competitions.

Sam has also won international honours with Italy in the Six Nations. Sam was converted from back row to hooker during his time at Bryanston School. He generates momentum for the team through his ball carrying, his ability to beat defenders and unpicking the defensive line.

His attacking threat is significant due to the marriage between size, strength and skill that he employs with ball in hand. Elrick’s contact skills creates a range of offload opportunities, which can feed the attack and challenge opposition defences.
