Profile

Not many players make their club debut against the Barbarians but Henry Walker did exactly that for Gloucester in their 62-14 defeat at Kingsholm last November. Born in Solihull and schooled at Bromsgrove for 10 years, he had previously attended Dorridge Infants School and first played at Old Silhillians RFC at the age of six.

He has been mentored by Tony Windo, the head of sport at Bromsgrove and a former Gloucester prop, has represented England U16 and U17, captained his school and won trophies in the U13 age group at the Millfield Sevens and the Rosslyn Park tournament. He made his debut for England U20 against Italy last February and by then had played in three senior matches for Gloucester against Saracens, Northampton Saints and Bayonne. In June, he figured in all five England games in the World U20 Championship in Georgia.

Henry, whose interests feature in music, is a member of the Gloucester Senior Rugby Academy and has played age-group cricket for Worcestershire and Warwickshire. His grandfather Peter Robinson, a lock, appeared for Moseley and for Cambridge against Oxford in the 1962 Varsity Match.
