Tom Duncan

Redruth forwards coach Ashley Morcom has called the try-scoring exploits of Tom Duncan "exceptional".

The 22-year-old back-row forward has already scored 10 tries in eight National Two South matches this season, to add to the 18 he got last season.

"He's a young player, new to the position he's playing, but he seems to be putting performances together," Morcom told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"Tom has been exceptional this year and he was last year as well."

Duncan made his debut for the Reds as a 19-year-old in 2009 and has since played 68 times for the club.

He has been with Redruth since he was 14 and, despite having is committed to the club until the end of the season.

"He's scoring tries every week so it's a good thing we've got someone like him on our side," added Morcom.
