James Fish is a rugby union player currently playing for the Aviva Premiership side Northampton Saints.[1]

Educated at Trent College, Fish's rugby career started at Derby when he was eight years of age and he developed his game further as a sixth form student at Trent College, winning the NatWest Vase at Twickenham in 2014.[2]

Brought into the Saints' Senior Academy in 2016, Fish has also represented England at Under-18s level and was named as part of the squad for their South Africa tour in 2014.[3]

Breaking into the first team squad in the 2016/17 season, Fish made his debut against Newcastle Falcons in November before scoring twice during the Anglo-Welsh Cup fixture against Scarlets.[1][4]

Most recently the hooker helped the Wanderers lift the 2017 Aviva 'A' League trophy, defeating Gloucester United in the final to claim the title.[5]
