Congratulations to Charlie Spawforth on his selection for the England squad in the Hong Kong 7's

All at Cobham RFC wish him and England every success.

Charlie Spawforth


Charlie Spawforth fell into rugby through his father Graham's passion for the game and he soon fell in love with the sport too.

Born in Hereford, Charlie was taken to Monmouth Rugby Club at just five years old before moving to Cobham and joining the Harlequins academy at the age of 12.

The scrum half attended Tonbridge School in Kent where in 2016, he won the Rosslyn Park sevens festival and NatWest Champions Trophy with his school team.

A multi-talented sportsman, Charlie played cricket and football for Tonbridge School in his final year where he graduated with A-levels in Maths (A*), Economics (A*) and Government and Politics (A).

Such impressive results are his proudest moment away from rugby while he also enjoys all kinds of music from rap to classical with Frank Ocean his favourite artist.

On the field, the scrum half made his England Sevens debut in the Bury St Edmunds sevens tournament before heading to Germany for Oktoberfest sevens.

He credits his parents, who spent hours driving him to rugby tournaments, trials and training all over the country, for getting him to England Sevens level.

His father Graham played rugby for Edinburgh University and Scottish Universities and he has two siblings, Harry and Pippi.
