YOUNG rugby star Joe Jenkins has signed professional terms with Bristol Bears’ Senior Academy ahead of next season.

The 18-year-old Monmouth School for Boys student is among nine players who have just sealed professional terms with the English Premiership club.

In 2021, powerful and pacey centre Joe was named in the England U18s squad after impressing the coaches in a two-day training camp.

Unfortunately, Joe missed the whole of last season through injury, but was, once again, named in the England U18 training squad.

“It is fantastic news that Joe has agreed professional terms with Bristol Bears’ Senior Academy,” said Mr Paul Morris, Master in Charge of Rugby Coaching at Monmouth School for Boys.

“Joe has been a huge part of rugby at our school. He has inspired many boys to follow their rugby dreams.

“Joe is an outstanding prospect and the contract with Bristol is testament to his talent, hard work and commitment.”

Joe, who lives near Chepstow and is currently a Deputy Head Boy at Monmouth, is a former pupil at Madley Primary School in Herefordshire and played at Hereford Rugby Club from U9 to U16 level.
