Part of England Under-20s squad that reach this summer’s Junior World Championships in Georgia, Josh Caulfield is a powerful forward who has come through the Exeter Chiefs Academy.
Initially starting out under the guidance of Rob Gibson at Bicton College, Caulfield was sent out to hometown club Taunton Titans to glean some much-needed experience at senior level in the National Leagues.
Sadly, a succession of injuries curtailed his development for at least a year, before he worked his back to full fitness at the start of the 2016/17 season.
Keen to blood him further in a higher standard, Caulfield was dual-registered with Championship outfit Cornish Pirates, a move which suited all parties during an industrious first season at the Mennaye.
Caulfield was a regular fixture within the Pirates ranks, featuring in 13 caps last season, whilst he made his senior Chiefs debut in the Anglo-Welsh Cup win against the Cardiff Blues in November 2016.
As well as featuring at the Junior World Championships with England, he was also part of their Six Nations winning squad
