A hat-trick of tries in a 19-minute spell marked the arrival of Max Stelling in Worcester Warriors’ first team. It came in their 85-5 away win over Spanish club Bizkaia Gernika in the Amlin Challenge Cup in October 2012.
Birmingham-born Max had been with Moseley, where he took up the game at the age of five, from 1998-2010, having been educated at Moseley Church of England Primary and Old Swinford Hospital School in Stourbridge. After joining the Worcester Academy, he went on to make his Aviva Premiership debut against Northampton Saints last November.
Max played 12 times for Jersey while on loan last season and his representative career features appearances for England U18 Schools and Clubs, along with Midlands U16 and U18 teams. His dad Nigel is his mentor and his ambitions are “to appear regularly in the Premiership and to push on to become an international player. I’m also interested in property.” By late January this year, he had scored eight tries in 13 first-team games for the Warriors.
His most memorable match was the 2011-12 Daily Mail Cup final in which Old Swinford lost 15-8 to Dulwich College at Twickenham. Max has played at fly half as well as centre and full back and his favourite player is Brian O’Driscoll. The ground he likes most is Sixways, the home of the Warriors.
