Jacob Morris started playing rugby at eight years old and knew he could rely on his father Simon for a helping hand throughout his career.
Simon represented Gloucester 104 times between 1990 and 1997 and Jacob is hoping to follow in his footsteps.
His father was a key influence during his time playing for Old Patesians – where he won three County Cups – before joining the Gloucester academy when he was 15.
The winger’s proudest moment was helping Hartpury College collect the AASE Championship title, defeating Gosforth Academy 66-14 in December 2017.
Jacob helped get Hartpury off to the perfect start with a fine try after just two minutes as the Cheltenham-born starlet was named man of the match in the final.
He also represented Gloucester at the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s in 2017, where the Cherry and Whites made the quarter-finals, losing to Harlequins.
It’s not only rugby that Jacob has a passion for – enjoying golf, football, table tennis and pool in his spare time.
A keen Manchester United fan, Jacob also likes going to Spain on holiday, listening to Coldplay and Elvis Presley and watching Impractical Jokers.
He describes himself as reliable, passionate and focussed and claims rugby legend Jonah Lomu is his sporting idol.Last updated: 7 March 2018
