Tom Youngs Career

Club career

On Boxing Day 2006, Youngs broke his leg and came off after thirteen minutes, making his Tigers debut against London Irish.

When he was asked to change to hooker by new head Coach Richard Cockerill in the Leicester "A" team as a hooker in the 2008/09 season.

In the 2010-2011 season, he was loaned to Nottingham R.F.C., a Leicester feeder club. where he was the first choice hooker.

Leicester defeated Northampton Saints in the 2013 Premiership final, with Youngs and his brother Ben.

He was named as the Tigers' club captain at the start of the 2016-17 season, replacing lock Ed Slater after being hospitalized for nearly half of the previous season.

Youngs reported his retirement on April 27, 2022, after taking indefinite leave during the 2021/22 season to care for his wife during sickness.

International career

Youngs was a member of the England squad at Rugby sevens from 2007-08.

Youngs was selected as part of England's summer tour to South Africa in 2012 as part of the main touring team for adventure. He competed in the midweek games, and his success earned him to be regarded as the England starting hooker.

Youngs was given the number two shirt for England's first 2012 Autumn International match against Fiji due to an injury to first-choice Hooker Dylan Hartley and the earlier retirement of second-choice Lee Mears. After Sir William Milton and his sons Jumbo and Cecil, the Youngs brothers became the second family to have a father and two sons play for England. An outstanding result meant he kept the shirt for the second test.

Youngs was selected as part of the 2013 British & Irish Lions tour to Australia, where he was regarded as part of the Victorious Lions squad.

Youngs was selected in Stuart Lancaster's 31-man squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup and went on to start all four games as hooker. He was controversially omitted from the Six Nations by new coach Eddie Jones, but he was later hospitalized for the Summer tour of Australia. He was overlooked again for the 2016 Autumn Internationals because he was not selected for Jones' 45 EPS Squad for the Six Nations, with skipper Dylan Hartley as first-choice, Jamie George as second choice, and Tommy Taylor as third choice.


CHRIS FOY: Nottingham and Cambridge are making a buzz and proving that life outside of the top tier is a success... not that the RFU appears to be aware, December 3, 2023
It was a great game on a cold night. Nottingham blasted a spirited Cambridge side 22-19 at Lady Bay last Friday to briefly take second place in the Championship for a short time. Given that the top tier is locked up and will remain so, to the Archers, they were near the top of the English rugby pyramid. A crowd of about 1,000 people enjoyed a close match that showed how competitive the second division of English rugby can be. The DJ's songs created a buzzing atmosphere. Plenty of young spectators attended the cheap tickets, including many students. The coffee was good, the food was good, and the rugby was good. There is life under the Premiership's and real value. Nottingham has a rich tradition of developing Test talent for England, from Brian Moore and Rob Andrew to Tom Youngs, Dan Cole, Will Stuart, and Ollie Chessum. However, they and their opponents are struggling with reduced funding and restructuring efforts initiated by the RFU and PRL, which they don't like.

Freddie Burns, the Leicester hero, opens a new light on his return to the limelight, September 3, 2022
Freddie Burns is sitting in the bar of the Brooklyn Hotel in Leicester as a couple of teenagers walk by and call out his name. 'We love you, Freddie,' they scream as they snap a snapshot of the city's new cult hero. He declines a drink, focusing on how he consumed more alcohol after his last-minute drop goal snatched the Premiership crown in June. Rather, he opts for a Coca-Cola. The No10 has a chuckle as it is thrown right back to the limelight at 32 years old.' 'I always knew I'd be remembered as the guy who dropped the ball against Toulouse.' I can't tell you how much s*** I got for that. People would talk about Freddie Burns and their reaction would be, "Oh yeah, that t***!"
