Brothers in Arms: The dedication and talent of Nuneaton born professional rugby players


Empire Gym & Studios members - Alfie and Charlie Bell

Meet Charlie (18) and Alfie Bell (20) - two remarkable young men who are carving their names in the world of professional rugby. Hailing from Nuneaton, these brothers have been making waves on the field as proud players of the esteemed Exeter Chiefs.

Their journey began at Higham Lane School in Nuneaton, where Alfie's passion for rugby was ignited. From there, he honed his skills and showcased his talent by representing Nuneaton Rugby Club at the under-13 level. It was evident that Alfie possessed a natural flair for the sport. Alfie also represented England at under 18, under 19 and under 20 levels.

Not long after his stint with Nuneaton Rugby Club, Alfie's exceptional abilities caught the attention of The Wasps. At just under 14 years old, he joined their ranks and continued to excel on a grander stage. His dedication and perseverance paid off as he steadily climbed the ranks of professional rugby.

Meanwhile, his younger brother Charlie also embarked on his own remarkable rugby journey. He also went to Higham Lane School and played alongside his brother at Nuneaton Rugby Club before joining The Wasps' youth setup. Together they formed an unstoppable force on and off the field.
