Reuben bolsters Bridgend’s pack for 2020/21

Bridgend Ravens’ pack has been bolstered further with the signing of versatile back rower, Reuben Tucker.

Reuben joins Steve Jones’ side as a vastly experienced Indigo Premiership campaigner. Tucker has featured in Wales’ top semi professional division for Cross Keys, Newport and Cardiff, now making the move to the Morganstone Brewery Field for the 2020/21 season. He is Bridgend Ravens’ fifth summer signing after the additions of Zac O’Driscoll, Joseph Gatt, Kieran Martin and Hemi Barnes were announced.

An alumnus of Swansea University, Tucker featured in back to back victories for the West Wales university over Cardiff at the Welsh Varsity.

He had been set for another season with the Black and Ambers last season, having rejoined Ty Morris’ side for the start of 2019/20, but injuries meant that Tucker played some of last season for Cowbridge before the outbreak of Covid19 curtained the campaign in Wales.

At just 27 years old, his best rugby years are ahead of him and he adds to an already impressive back row division at Bridgend Ravens.

Delighted to be linking up with Bridgend, Reuben said ‘I’m really looking forward to the new season when we can finally get underway. I’m excited to get back to playing after a long injury lay off over the past few seasons and I’ll be working hard to get back to my best. 

Signing for Bridgend was an easy decision – I feel we have recruited well for the upcoming season and I’m sure we can put in a good challenge in the league when it starts up.’

Forwards Coach Alun Wyn Davies commented ‘It’s great to finally get the signing of Reuben over the line and to get him on board at Bridgend Ravens. 

He’s a player that we have had a close eye on for some time and it’s great to have him back in the Premiership. Those of you that have seen Reuben play against Bridgend will know that he’s an uncompromising, physical lad and he’ll be a good addition to the defence culture that we’re trying to build at the club. 

His character and experience will be a welcome voice on and off the pitch.’
