Pirates sign James Fish

The Cornish Pirates are pleased to announce that hooker James Fish has been signed on a dual-registration agreement with Premiership club Northampton Saints.

A member of the Saints Senior Academy, the 21-year-old first played rugby at Derby, aged eight,  whilst he later developed his game as a Sixth form student at Trent College, during which he was a NatWest Vase winner at Twickenham in 2014.

James has also earned international honours, representing England Under 16s South before representing England Under 18s on tour to South Africa in 2014.

Breaking into Northampton's first team squad last season, he made his debut against Newcastle Falcons in November before scoring twice during the Anglo-Welsh Cup fixture against Scarlets.

The hooker also helped Northampton's 'Wanderers' side lift the 2017 Aviva 'A' League trophy, after defeating Gloucester United in the final.
