Joseph described his time at Sunderland College as interesting, beneficial and fun. He said Sunderland College really helped him to develop as an athlete and provided great opportunities for him.

He said:
“The atmosphere is great between the sporting academies and the facilities are fantastic.

I loved the practical side of the course and how it has enabled me to develop great skills in coaching sport.

Combining my studies with an elite training programme was one of the reasons I joined the college, having rugby in my timetable everyday allowed me to better myself at every training session and push myself further with the fantastic coaching on offer.”

Joseph has high hopes to develop his skills further, join the Falcons Rugby Academy Squad and turn professional
