Will Muir has enjoyed a fine career with England Sevens since making his senior bow at the Assupol International Sevens tournament in South Africa in October 2017.
He earned selection the following month for the Silicon Valley Sevens in California, where he scored three tries as England finished sixth in the standings.
His performances saw him called up once again for the opening round of the 2018 Rugby Europe Sevens Grand Prix Series in Moscow in May.
Will produced the standout moment against France in the knockout stages, breaking from deep and using his clever footwork to score England’s only points as they exited the Cup competition.
A few months later, he received another call-up for the Mitsubishi Motors Exeter Sevens as England won the Rugby Europe Sevens Grand Prix Series Cup final with a 15-5 victory over Russia.
Will started playing rugby at the age of nine for Guisborough Rugby Club, before going on to represent Northumbria University in the BUCS Super League from 2016-18.
Will has since graduated with first class honours in mechanical engineering and was part of the Newcastle Falcons Associate Academy, representing the club in the Premiership Rugby Sevens final in 2017.
Will credits Guisborough coaches John Wardell and Trevor Edwards for his rugby development growing up, as well as Northumbria University coach Darren Fearn.
His proudest rugby achievements include being part of the Guisborough side that secured promotion to North East 1 division and winning the BUCS National Sevens Championship by scoring in the last play.
He added that winning the Rugby Europe Sevens Grand Prix Series Cup in Exeter was his best moment wearing the Red Rose jersey.
His personal accolades include being the BUCS Super Rugby top try scorer in the 2017/18 campaign, while he was also awarded the Sport Newcastle rising star award in 2018.
Will’s favourite sport outside of rugby is football and he supports Middlesbrough FC. Other favourite pastimes include farming and motorbiking and he is a big fan of the computer game Fortnite.
