Corum Nott was recently selected for Wales Under 18 squad, with the possibility of international fixtures against Japan, Ireland, England, and France.
The Welsh winger from Gordon’s School in West End, Woking has experienced a meteoric rise in the past year, from playing for his school team to Surrey County to being picked for the Welsh Exiles before moving on to Scarlets and the Welsh Squad.
A relative newcomer to the game, having only begun at Gordon’s in Year 7, aged 11, Corum is now hooked and hopes to pursue a career in the sport professionally.
“It’s exciting, you never know what is going to happen,” said Corum, adding “It’s really good fun”.
Currently studying for his A-Levels in Physical Education, Business Students and Design and Technology, he is hoping to take a degree in sports coaching at Cardiff Metropolitan where he can also continue with his sport.
He follows in the footsteps of Welsh International Jake Ball, also from Gordon’s.
Coach Chris Davies, former skills coach, and analyst for the Fiji National Sevens Team said he was delighted that Corum’s hard work had been awarded with the Wales selection, helped by the strong links forged with Harlequins RFU by the school. This year, Corum and his school team have recorded their most successful season.
“This achievement is also part of the hard work that his teammates have put in this season which has been our best ever in the school’s history, so this really is the icing on the cake” added Mr. Davies.
