Bears sign Niall Collett
Niall Collett - Hooker
TT: Niall has also impressed us while being on trial since November and is showing all the attributes we look for in a player. He is also a Midlands player, coming from Burton and is another graduate of the Midlands Hurricanes. Niall recently represented England Colleges vs Australian Schoolboys and played for Derby City RL. He is a talented player, who has performed well in training so far. Having recently turned 19 he has a lot of development ahead of him, and needs to get used to the physicality at League 1 level, but I am very confident he will make the step up well.
NC: Signing for Coventry bears is a great opportunity for me to challenge myself in senior rugby. The pre season has been tough but enjoyable and will hopefully put me on the right path for the season. I’m looking forward for the season starting so I can earn my place in the squad and I am aiming to eventually get a place in the starting team
