Transfer Rumours: Another England prospect set to move to Ireland

Hayden Hyde is currently in Harlequins’ junior academy as he finishes up his final year at school and the Gallagher Premiership side was keen to retain him.

However, it seems as if the lure of Ulster and the pathway to the national team in Ireland has proven too strong for him to turn down, according to Rugby Pass.

A former back rower turned centre, Hyde has set himself apart at U18 level with his physical and incisive running in the midfield, as well as a developing passing game and ability to keep phases alive after breaks.

Irish qualified, Hyde has already represented the nation through the Exiles system at Under 18 and Under 19 levels as well as in U18 Rugby Sevens.

England had looked to mount a challenge when Hyde was called into an U18 trainingpanel last month but, with the teenager opting to remain with Ireland, he’ll be aiming to make the step up to the Grand Slam winning Under 20s.
