South Shields’ Zach Clark will be looking to build on a breakthrough 2016 in Kingstone Press League 1 this season.
20-year-old Clark made his first start in July after recovering from injury, against South Wales Ironmen before making a further five appearances by the end of the season.
A product of the club’s academy system and college scholarships, Clark acquitted himself in his first tastes of senior professional rugby, scoring three tries and earning a man of the match accolade on his debut.
Quick footed, he provides an added threat in attack and is able to close down opposition strike runners in defence.
With plenty of raw talent still to be harnessed and experienced wingers like Ali Blair, Tyler Craig and Peter Fox in the squad to learn from, Clark has the perfect opportunity to hone his abilities and develop as a player.
