Adam is an out-and-out try scorer, with natural pace and evasive running skills that aren’t matched by many in Premiership Rugby. Having already scored an early contender for 2020/21 Try of the Season, Adam certainly has a bright future ahead.
Adam began his rugby journey with Middlesbrough RUFC, going on to play for Hartlepool Sixth Form College, Billingham RUFC and Darlington Mowden Park as before progressing to the Newcastle Falcons’ academy.
Adam joined the Falcons’ senior academy in the summer of 2017 after a string of impressive performances becoming renowned for his pace, evasive running, and finishing ability. Adam’s progress continued during the 2017/18 campaign, winning the Anglo-Welsh Cup Breakthrough Player Award for the season.
He made his Premiership debut during the 2017/18 season, winning Falcons’ Academy Player of the Season, and also ending up as the top try-scorer during the European Challenge Cup including back-to-back hat-tricks against Enisei-STM. Adam scored his first Premiership try during the away game at Bristol in 2018/19, and also scored his first Heineken Champions Cup try away to Edinburgh.
During 2020 Adam pledged his future to the Falcons’ by signing an extended contract with the Falcons, following an impressive record of 25 tries in his 31 appearances for the side. At just 23 Adam has already cultivated a reputation as an out-and-out try scorer, with natural pace and evasive running skills.
The 2020 season started brightly for Falcons, with four wins from their first five games, including a stunning individual try from Adam against Gloucester, running from 95m and stepping Jonny May to finish in the corner. We think there’s plenty more to come from Adam and the Falcons, so watch this space.
