Sam Jones

Born in Aylesbury, Sam Jones started playing rugby at Aylesbury Grammar School and Aylesbury RFC, aged 11 and rose through the ranks of the Wasps Academy system to make his Wasps senior debut in November 2010 against Newport Gwent Dragons, having featured many times for the Wasps 'A' team.

Having represented England at U16 and U18 levels, Sam was a key member of the England U20 side that reached the final of the 2011 Junior World Cup.

As a young developing back-rower Sam was exposed to significant first team action during the 2011/12 season following a number of injuries and despite the difficult circumstances, the youngster shone across the back-row.

Sam was awarded the London Wasps Young Player of the Year award at the end of the 2011/12 season and is the Community's CoacHclass Programme Ambassador.

Last season, Sam made 26 appearances for Wasps. He captained the side and scored a try against Sale Sharks in the last seconds of the game in which London Wasps lost by the narrowest of margins.

Sam was nominated for 'Young Player of the Season' at the end of last season and was selected for the Barbarians squad as one of the two uncapped players alongside fellow Wasps teammate Elliot Daly, topping off a great season from the youngster with a lot more to come.

Away from rugby, Sam balances his professional rugby commitments with a full-time degree in English at King's College London.
