24-year-old Joe Margetts is another product of the Hartpury College rugby machine, having spent seven years at the institution in total. Margetts joined as 16-year-old in the College’s AASE team before progressing to the University ranks.
While studying for a degree in Business Management, Joe aided Hartpury’s BUCS side to a Super Rugby title and, upon graduating, was offered a contract with their Saturday side in the Championship.
A natural athlete, Joe had agreed to join Ayrshire Bulls in the Scotland’s new Super6 tournament in September last year but Covid prevented the competition from going ahead.
Despite having had a slight break from the game, the Knights coaching set-up sees a lot of potential in this acquisition.
