23/24 Trailfinders Rugby Academy Graduates

Ealing Trailfinders are thrilled to announce that three players are graduating from Brunel University to the first team.

Josh Taylor, Geordie Gwynn, and Darren Low are the latest success stories from the ever-growing talent pool that is developing at Brunel.

Josh Taylor had a breakout season in 23/24 for Ealing Trailfinders 1st XV, making his debut in a 34-32 victory over Doncaster Knights in the Premiership Rugby Cup. A bruising ball carrier in the back row, Taylor represented Scotland U20s between 2021 and 2023, having studied at St Paul’s Catholic College before his time at Brunel University.

Gwynn is a versatile outside back in his second year of study in Uxbridge. Over the last two seasons, he has represented Scotland U20s and is currently Co-Captain for the side. Gwynn started his rugby journey at Lewes RFC aged 4.

Darren Low is a promising back rower who was educated at the infamous rugby factory Kirkham Grammar School. Low played for Italy U18s and excelled in his first season at Brunel University, becoming a mainstay in the 1st XV.

Director of Rugby Ben Ward said: “We’re delighted that these three lads are moving up from the Trailfinders Rugby Academy. They’ve all impressed in their performances at Brunel, and with their respective nations age grade teams. It’s a testament to the work that the staff are doing at Brunel University that these players are coming into the first team environment, and we’re all very excited to see how they can develop.”
