The 2020 NSW Waratahs forwards squad has been bolstered by the addition of the exciting Tom Horton. The Mosman Whales junior proved to be a standout for Sydney Uni in their 2019 premiership season, earning a call up into the U20s Australian squad for the Oceania Championships. Horton’s impressive 2019 campaign with the NSW Country Eagles also solidified his standing as a promising prospect for the hooking role for the NSW Waratahs. A product of the NSW Gen Blue Academy system is a massive benefit for him as he familiarises himself with the 2020 senior squad. Hoping to build on his first professional pre-season, Horton’s physicality and technical proficiency is sure to spark friendly competition for a starting forward’s birth.
