Being inducted to the world of higher level rugby was a satisfying experience for Jordan Turner-Hall, a forthright runner, who marked his debut with a try for England in the non-cap match against the Barbarians at Twickenham four years ago. He played alongside Jamie Noon at centre soon after being announced the unanimous winner of the Land Rover Discovery of the Season award.
Jordan played in the corresponding game in May 2011 off the bench for Ugo Monye and by February last year when his Test debut came against Scotland at Murrayfield he had made 88 Premiership appearances. They included 22 in 2008-09 and by the end of last season his overall total in the competition had expanded to 112 with 12 tries. He also produced eye-catching performances in Europe, one of his high spots being a try against Stade Français in front of a crowd of almost 80,000 at Stade de France.
London born, he had represented England U16 in 2003-04, U18 in 2005, U19 in 2006 before becoming a member of the U20 Grand Slam-winning side in 2008. After that, he helped England to beat Australia and South Africa to reach the final of the IRB Junior World Championship.
A product of Brighton College, he first played the game on the wing for the Hove club's U14 side and became a member of the Junior National Academy in 2004.
He made his Harlequins debut in the Premiership against Bristol at the age of 18 on October 15, 2006 and injected potency into the Harlequins midfield since graduating from the club's academy. He has earned a reputation as a potent offloader to create try-scoring opportunities for others and played off the bench for Henry Trinder in England Saxons' 41-14 win over Tonga at Gloucester in June 2011.
Jordan also shared in England's midweek matches that both produced 50-points plus and victories over the South African Barbarians South and North sides on the 2012 summer tour of South Africa and started both Saxons games against Ireland Wolfhounds and Scotland A this year.
