Leicester Tigers and England
One of the most exciting fly-half’s in England, the precocious number 10 has made a name for himself as playing an open, attacking brand of rugby, with an aptitude for scoring tries as well being a solid goal kicker.
Coming through the Gloucester Academy, Freddie made the 10 shirt his own in 2010, and in 2011-12 he scored almost 300 club points for the club, made the England Saxons team, and was named Premiership player of the month in February. After signing a new contract with Gloucester until 2014, Freddie went on to have an excellent 2012/13 season, which saw him make his full England debut in the country’s first win v New Zealand since 2003, and also start for England on their summer tour of Argentina, and was the Premierships highest points scorer, as well as the winning the Golden Boot for most points kicked in the Premiership. That year he became the first Gloucester player to be named the Young Player of the Year twice.
In July 2014 he joined Leicester Tigers on a 2 year contract, as well as travelling to New Zealand on their summer tour where he made 2 starts against the World Champions.
