James Tuttle is a promising young scrumhalf who has been working his way diligently through the Queensland Rugby pathway for a number of years.
An Achilles injury suffered in Bond University Queensland Country’s NRC semi-final win over the Western Force is expected to cruelly sideline Tuttle for the majority of the 2019 Super Rugby season.
Tuttle found a healthy rhythm in 2017, establishing himself as a consistent performer for the Reds in Super Rugby, before playing a key role in Bond University Queensland Country’s title-winning run in the National Rugby Championship.
While always a talented athlete, Tuttle added goal kicking to his armoury in 2017 – a skill which saw him claim the honour of leading points scorer in the National Rugby Championship.
The Brisbane born and raised scrumhalf has proven to be a leader among his peers, captaining the Australian Schoolboys, Australian Under 20s and Queensland Country at various times in the past four years.
*Please note, the scoring in the National Rugby Championship changed from seasons 1 and 2 to season 3. In 2014 and 2015 tries were worth 5 points, conversions 3 points, penalties/drop goals 2 points. In 2016, tries were worth 6 points, conversions/penalty goals/drop goals 2 points.
