Kyle Moyle

19th Jan 1993 1.81m/89kg Fullback

A product of Penzance & Newlyn RFC’s youth section, Kyle was part of a talented group, including such as Luke Cowan-Dickie and Jack Nowell. Educated at Mounts Bay School and then Truro College, his early senior rugby was played with the Pirates Amateurs, St. Ives, and then, in 2011/12, the Cornish All Blacks, which was the same season he received the Cornwall U20s ‘Player of the Year’ award.

He made his debut for the Cornish Pirates in December 2012, when coming off the bench and confidently showing some good touches in a 30-10 points British & Irish Cup win away to Swansea. Involved in a bit of history, it was the first time that the Pirates had won a match in Wales since their first visit way back in 1949.

Injuries have at times disrupted his progress, but when fully fit he has proven himself a scintillating runner who has scored some super tries. Indeed, he was the ‘Try of the Season’ award winner in both 2014 and 2016.

Impressing playing mainly at full-back through the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons, with his try-scoring exploits also again on show, he, unfortunately, suffered a serious knee injury away to Ealing Trailfinders in the semi-final of the Championship Cup. It was naturally a blow, however, he still picked up both the ‘Player of the Year’ and the ‘Supporters Player of the Year’ awards for a second year running.

Returning to action in December 2019, it was not long before Kyle was again exciting the crowd with his running. In total, he made 10 more appearances in the ‘Coronavirus’ curtailed 2019/20 season – taking his games tally for the club to 136 – and he was also selected in The Rugby Paper’s Championship ‘Dream XV’.

In November 2020, he signed a short-term deal with Gloucester.

On 6 January 2021, Moyle signed a permanent deal with Gloucester after a superb start to his Gloucester having been involved in 6 of the 7 games to start the season.
