Biography

David Weetman made 10 Betfred League 1 appearances for Cornwall last term. He scored four tries – including one each on his debut, and full debut.

The player assistant coach, who hails from Tyneside, came through the youth ranks at amateur side Cramlington Rockets before joining Newcastle Thunder.

He found opportunities limited at Kingston Park and moved to Cornwall’s divisional rivals Workington Town. Sadly, Weetman suffered a serious leg injury whilst playing for the Cumbrians against London Skolars.

But he battled back to full fitness and made a handful of loan appearances for Midlands Hurricanes in 2022.

Once his spell in France was over, Cornwall beat off stiff competition from a whole host of clubs for Weetman’s signature and the Choughs have done likewise to tie the popular Geordie down for the next two seasons.
