DONE DEAL - Exiles welcome exciting Rookies for 2017

04-04-2017

In the week leading up to the first game of the 2017 season we’re looking at our new signings, returning players, promising rookies and graduates from the Junior Team to look at the impact some of these players might have on the team. Today it’s the turn of the ten 2017 Rookies…

Matt Skinner, Harry Kent & Obi Juwah – Running Backs

The Exiles have added 3 promising players to their stable of backs, including Matt Skinner who is a bruising power runner having come from a rugby background, he’s already shown he knows the playbook and can powerfully move through a hole in our pre-season scrimmages. Harry and Obi are both speedy runners, both coming from a soccer background, and should feature on special teams as well as in the backs rotation.

Kaya Moulla, Jamie Al-Ali & Michael Brown – Linemen

The Exiles have added some big men up front, especially in 6’6”, 350lb defensive lineman Michael Brown. Another player with a rugby background, Michael will add to our strength in the middle of the line. Kaya and Jamie will both feature on the offensive line, and have progressed well under the tutelage of line Coach Mitchell, with Kaya playing extensively in the pre-season to get him game ready.

Mitchell Kenyon & Glen Canderton – Defensive Backs

Both Mitchell and Glen joined the Exiles after enjoying recruitment sessions the team put on in the off-season. Both look set to feature in the rotation as well as on special teams having shown their tenacity and fitness in training.

Dan Doerr & Luke Jessop – Receivers

Dan joins the team close to the season so will be looking to learn the position during the early weeks and then make a push for more playing time as the season progresses. Luke has shown great hands in training, using his size well from the TE position and blocking well. An injury sustained in training will keep him out of the early games, but he can be relied on as the season progresses.

We’re excited to welcome all our rookies to the 2017 squad and watching them progress and contribute during the year.
