Taking up studies in biomedical sciences at St Edmund Hall, Oxford in September 2016 has opened new horizons for Joseph Morris.
Joseph first played at King Edward VI Aston School at the age of 11, where he was encouraged to join his local club Sutton Coldfield which he did when playing for the U13 team.
He joined Worcester Warriors at U16 level and played for the U18 team, alongside his studies in Year 13 at King Edward VI Aston in A-level biology, chemistry and maths.
He was also the school's rugby captain but before that he attended Holy Cross Catholic Primary School in Sutton Coldfield in the town where he was born.
Joseph made his England U20 debut in the 2017 Six Nations against France, also helping the side win the Grand Slam against Ireland.
His representative honours include Greater Birmingham, North Midlands and England at U16 level and he also played against France U17 for the England Academies in April 2015.
In the year that Joseph represented the England U16 team he became a more permanent front row player after being a blind-side flanker or No 8.
David Pocock has been his inspiration while Ben and Owen Franks represent the type of player into which he wants to develop. He started Tae Kwon-Do at the age of four and was a black belt five years later
His favourite ground, for great reasons, is his old school's pitch.
Joseph's dream holiday destination is Orlando because of its theme parks. He mostly listens to dance and house music, and chicken tikka madras curry goes down well when he watches Friends or The Big Bang Theory on TV.
His favourite computer game is Call of Duty.
