Biography

Hailing from Perranporth, Henry Symons became the club’s first ever Cornish signing last December.

The 21-year-old flyer is currently studying at the University of Gloucestershire and he has been playing rugby league regularly for their British University and College Sport (BUCS) team.

A number of impressive showings have seen Symons catch the eye and he recently represented the South West of England in University competition. Earlier this year, Symons was part of the South England side who were edged out by their North counterparts in the annual University Origin match.

Those representative honours come just three years after Symons first took up the sport of rugby league. Growing up in Cornwall, he played rugby union as a youngster, but before starting University, he was a talented boxer.
