Miles Benjamin

England Saxons star Miles Benjamin is regarded as one of the deadliest and brightest wingers in English rugby after developing his try scoring skills at Worcester Warriors.

The Solihull speedster, a product of the thriving Academy system at Warriors, first exploded into the senior side in 2007/08 as he enjoyed a glittering debut season.

Benjamin – also part of the England Under-19 team in the IRB Under-19 World Championships that year - scored a try on his first senior start against London Irish in the EDF Energy Cup and his first top-flight try against Newcastle Falcons a matter of weeks later.

The wing finished his first full season as the club’s leading try-scorer with 15 tries in 27 games and with it fourth place in the Premiership try-scoring charts with nine. Benjamin's incredible progress was underlined at the end of the season when he jointly picked up the Young Player-of-the-Year prize at the end-of-season awards.

The wing continued his eye catching development in the summer of 2008 when he was part of the IRB Junior World Championships. Benjamin scored four tries to finish as England’s top scorer in the tournament.

Benjamin's progress was disrupted during the 2008/09 season as he suffered a broken leg in a European Challenge Cup fixture with Bourgoin. However, he returned to action later that season and memorable scored against the same side when he returned to the Stade Pierre Rajon in the European semi-final.

The flying back, who signed a two-year contract in November 2009 to remain at the club until 2012, recorded six tries in 21 games during the 2009/10 campaign and made his England Saxons debut coming off the bench to face Ireland in January 2010.

Benjamin played a huge role in Worcester’s promotion in 2010/11 as he scored a stunning 26 tries in 30 games and finished as the top try-scorer in the RFU Championship. He also made his 100th appearance on the final day of the season against Cornish Pirates, celebrating by racing over for his 51st club try for a scoring ratio of one try less than every two games.

The wing remains a key part of English rugby’s future, underlined by a call-up by England Saxons in the summer of 2011 for the Churchill Cup on home soil.

Benjamin joined Leicester Tigers at the end of the 2011/12 season after making 124 appearances and scoring 300 points for Warriors.
