Jonah Holmes

24th Jul 1992 1.85m/92kg Right Wing

Known for his hard-working, strong and combative nature, Jonah also represented London Wasps last season in both the Senior Squad and in the Wasps 'A' squad.

Jonah, who also plays fullback and wing, is another product of St. Benedicts School and continues to follow in the footsteps of fellow ex-pupil Joe Simpson.

Holmes made the move to Yorkshire Carnegie on loan in the 2013/14 season and made the move permanent in the 2014/15 season. He has been a force to be reckoned with during his time at Carnegie and a prolific try scorer.

In May 2017, Holmes signed for Leicester Tigers in the Aviva Premiership, joining Joe Ford in leaving Carnegie for Tigers.

The 24-year-old Holmes began his professional career at London Wasps and played Premiership rugby on loan for London Welsh before moving to Yorkshire.

He has experience at scrum-half and full-back as well as on the wing where he has been a prolific try-scorer, scoring 15 tries in 22 Championship games this season and 51 in 87 appearances during his time at Carnegie.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Holmes has had 2 European Cups appearances.

Holmes was called into the Wales squad ahead of the 2018 November Tests.
