Deacon’s rugby success

3 December 2021

Deacon turned to rugby as he didn’t like football – and is currently at Super League giants St Helens.

The Year 11 pupil has been playing rugby since he was seven.

“I signed a two-year deal at St Helens when I was 14 and am waiting to hear about a new contract,” said the second row.

“I took up rugby as I didn’t like football and my dad took me to a few games.

“I like the physicality of it and it’s very competitive. I would love to play professional rugby.”
