Nifty footwork and pace have enhanced the swift development of Dominic Waldouck, a member of the England party to New Zealand in 2008 at the age of 20 and to Australasia last year.
London-born Dominic sustained a twisted ankle after impressing for the first half hour in the 15-9 win over the Australian Barbarians at Gosford and took no further part in the tour. Dominic had originally been selected three summers ago for the England Saxons’ squad for the Barclays Churchill Cup in Canada and the USA.
After that, he started all four Saxons’ matches in 2009, having been a try-scorer on his debut against Portugal that January. It replicated the one he ran in when playing his first international game for England Under 16s against Italy.
He became an ever present in his subsequent Saxons’ appearances in the Barclays Churchill Cup in Denver, having graduated from the London Wasps Academy that he joined in 2003. The following season, he won a place in the club’s A team and his senior debut was in the EDF Energy Cup against London Irish in October 2006.
He then played off the bench when Wasps beat Leicester Tigers 25-9 in the Heineken Cup final at Twickenham the following May. His performances earned him third place in the Guinness Premiership Young Player of the Season awards behind club mates Tom Rees and James Haskell.
In 2009-10, he made 17 Premiership appearances and has figured in 64 matches, with ten tries, in the competition in almost five seasons. His previous club was Richmond and his other honours include appearing for England Under 19 Sevens in the Commonwealth Youth Games in Australia six years ago.
A talented all rounder and product of Latymer Upper School, he played football for Fulham Academy, cricket for the South East England Under 16s, competed in track events for Middlesex and ran cross country for London.
