What happened to TJ's American football contract, He will take some catching on the wing, but his catching of a ball was not good at Oakham School.

He got was at college in the states. Teenagers don't go to the NFL. He would have had to do his time at college level then enter the draft. Quick Google shows he didn't play once and was looking to move college before deciding to head back to the UK and take a contract at Bristol. He originally quit rugby to spend time working on his 100m time which he got down to 10.72 which is quick for a lad of his age.

Thank you. You are a genius! If I knew which pub you drank in I'd buy you a pint - but sadly GDPR doesn't allow for the exchange of personal information, so I'll buy myself one and drink to you instead.

Yes he is very quick, my Grandson was in the same team as TJ and features in the video. Cam Jordan was also in the team. Sadly they lost in the final, but it was great to be at Sarries and Twickers for the Semi and Final. I watched them for many years at Oakham School.

Contract wasn’t renewed not good enough for the premiership may as well play somewhere nice like Italy at championship level. Good luck to him

Good for him, I’m glad he still has taken up rugby as I was worried he was going to walk away from it all.
