English Rugby Union Player, Sam Underhill played a crucial part in England’s 2019 Rugby World Cup squad reaching the final against South Africa on Saturday the 2nd of November. Sam has been playing Rugby since a young age, with his talent and determination driving him through his career to where he is today. Sam is currently playing for the Bath and England Aviva Premiership team as a Flanker.
At the young age of 17, Sam began making a name for himself in the Rugby world. He began by making his debut playing for Gloucester in the Anglo-Welsh Cup. He then went on to make his debut in Premiership Rugby a year later at the age of 18. Since then Underhill’s rugby career has gone from strength to strength.
Sam attended Cardiff University and whilst he was there he played for the Bridgend Rugby Club. After impressing the masses with his talent for Rugby on this team, he was given the opportunity to play for the Welsh Pro12 team called the Ospreys. Sam made his debut for this team playing against the Irish Rugby club Ulster. He was later awarded the title of man of the match for his hard work and determination in the game when playing against Munster.
Sam continually impressed fans and coaches, and after a while playing for the Ospreys he was called up to the senior England Squad, joining them on their summer Argentina tour. Sam also had his name in the limelight when he played pivotal roles as part of the 2018 Six Nations squad and in the Quilter Autumn Internationals in 2018-19.
Sam has also had the privilege of being the captain of teams. In 2014 he captained the U18’s England team during the 2014 FIRA Tournament. Another significant victory for Sam is when he helped defeat the All Black’s leading England to reach the World Cup, which was their first since 2007.
Sam is deemed to be a key part of the success of England’s Rugby squad. His energy, class technique and impeccable performance help England to secure victories time and time again. Sam’s drive and commitment to the sport make him a great team player and role model within the world of Rugby.
