Sam James

Where are you from and where do you live now?

I am from Bishops Stortford in Hertfordshire, where I have lived for the vast majority of my life. I currently live in one of the surrounding villages of the town in Stansted Mountfitchet, Essex.

Where did you go to school?

All Saints CofE (Bishops Stortford)

The Bishop's Stortford High School (TBSHS)

Where and when did you start playing rugby?

TBSHS in year seven, is where I first started playing rugby and I then went on later in the season of U12's to join BSRFC.

What position(s) do you play?


What is your greatest achievement in rugby so far?

Representing England at both U17 & U18.

Who is your favourite player/rugby inspiration and why?

Rory Best, because he is a consistently high performer, a great leader, and has a good all-round game essential for a hooker.

What excites you most about being part of the Wasps Academy set up?

Seeing academy products playing for the first XV currently, shows the quality of the set up and the opportunities that academy players are given. I am hoping to emulate previous academy products.

Where would like to see yourself in 5 years' time?

Hopefully playing for London Wasps First XV, and pushing for representative honours. In addition to obtaining a degree in human geography.

If you were a wild animal what would it be and why?

Lion - because it's such a respected animal and it represents pride and prowess.
