Player: Tom Hopkins sponsored by Dr Leather
Played at the club through age grade rugby. Versatile enough to play anywhere in the back division and probably has for Sherborne at some stage. Lost a couple of seasons through injury but in excellent form this year One of our thinkers on the pitch very similar to Alan Dunkley who joined us from Exeter in 1992 who would always get the ball to the right part of the pitch when it mattered.
