New Hallian rugby star, Dominic Morris, recently made his Gallagher Premiership debut for Saracens on 27 April. Dominic then went on to score his first Premiership try a week later, on 4 May, in his home debut scoring two tries for Saracens in their dominant win over Exeter. Dominic was also part of the successful Saracens Storm side that won the Premiership Rugby Shield.
Growing up in Essex, Dominic was recruited by Saracens aged 15 after they spotted him playing for New Hall School, and he has been in the club’s academy ever since. Dominic recently signed a professional contract extension with Saracens to extend his deal to 2020, while he continues to study for his undergraduate degree alongside his rugby career.
Dominic has returned to New Hall on numerous occasions to assist with coaching, most recently for a rugby masterclass organised for local school children and held at New Hall School. Mr Owen Cobbe, Director of Boys’ Sport, said: “New Hall is immensely proud of Dominic. We have watched him develop into a fine young player over recent years. He has all the necessary attributes to be an extremely successful Premiership player and we wish him the best of luck in his Saracens career.”
New Hall School provides excellent facilities and training for budding sports stars, alongside a successful academic programme and fantastic music and performing arts provision. The boarding and day school for students aged 1-18 has a Catholic foundation and ethos, which welcomes those of all backgrounds. The strong pastoral care structure at the school supports students in their endeavours, allowing them to achieve success in a wide variety of fields.
