Former Coopers Coborn student will be on the move in the summer

Former Coopers Coborn student George Perkins will join Bristol Rugby next season from reigning Aviva Premiership champions Saracens.

The 21-year-old has been dual-registered with Bedford Blues in the Championship for the past two seasons, but will leave Sarries permanently in the summer.

The Upminster native was part of the England Under-20s squad that won the World Championship in 2016, the same year the Young Roses also won the Six Nations.

Perkins appeared for Saracens in the Anglo-Welsh Cup earlier this year, but has decided to venture to pastures new in search of more opportunities.

“George has blistering pace and plenty of experience, having represented England through the age grades and Saracens in the Aviva Premiership,” Bristol head coach Mark Tainton told the club website.

“During his time on loan in the Championship with Bedford Blues, George has consistently shown himself to be one of the most potent finishers in the league.”

Whether Perkins will be playing for a Premiership club next season is up for debate, with Bristol nine points from safety with just four games to go.
