He is no stranger to professional rugby having appeared for England Sevens in the 2010 Commonwealth Games where he amassed 20 tries in ten HSBC Sevens World Series tournaments, on the back of his success the previous year in the 2009 IRB Sevens Series. Before the series began he was even the leading scorer in the RFU Championship.
In 2008 he was part of England's RBS Six Nations U20 Grand Slam winning team and also he represented England U18 in 2006/07 season.
A spectacular spree of 52 tries, an England record, in the IRB 2012-13 World Series pushed ben into second place behind Ben Gollings (220) in the list of England’s all-time top scorers.
He currently plays for Bristol Rugby 1st XV after moving from fellow club Gloucester.
