Since moving to Leicester Tigers in 2016, George Martin’s rugby career has motored with international honours and silverware both secured in a short space of time.
The Nottingham-born lock captained the Tigers’ U16s team to Wellington Festival glory in 2017 while he also made his debut for the England U16s against Wales.
George started playing rugby as a nine-year-old at Fairfield Preparatory School in Loughborough but admits he played more football than rugby in his early years.
A keen Leicester City fan, it was his parents, dad David and mother Claudia, who always insisted he competed in as many different sports as possible.
He moved to Brooksby Melton College in 2017 to study BTEC Level 3 Sports Science and it was there that he started to believe he could make it to the top.
George has rugby in his genes, with his brother Felix a player for Loughborough Grammar School and Loughborough Rugby Club.
Away from the pitch, he is a keen electronic dance music and hip-hop fan, following artists such as xxxTentacion and Travis Scott, while his favourite holiday destination is France.
George’s favourite TV show is Blue Planet, while lasagne is his number one meal.
