MAX Clementson will be jetting around the world next year after securing an England Sevens contract.

The back-row forward has been selected for his country’s 2022 programme, bringing to an end his time at Chinnor.

Clementson joins up with the Sevens squad early next month for a training camp at Loughborough University, before the upcoming World Series round in Malaga from January 21 to 23.

The openside flanker has represented his country before, but a first professional deal is a step up.

“I’m over the moon. It’s a dream to play for England,” he told Chinnor’s official website.

“I’ve represented England Counties, Under 18s and Juniors before, and it never gets old.

“To do it for a full set-up is going to be pretty cool.

“I just can’t wait to get started and the future is really exciting.

“It’s all quite mad – surreal is probably the word – and knowing that in two weeks’ time I will be at the camp, feels fantastic.

“It is what I’ve always wanted to do since I started playing rugby when I was four.

“It’s been a dream to play pro rugby and to have that first contract is fantastic.”

Clementson was one of just seven players selected in the initial core group for 2022 after impressing at several training camps.

The World Series calendar takes in trips to Malaga, Seville, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Singapore and Toulouse over the next five months, before coming to Twickenham at the end of May.

Clementson is also set to compete at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham next summer.

He leaves Chinnor after less than five months, scoring four tries in eight games in the meantime.

“I’ve loved my time at Chinnor and I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity it has given me,” the No 7 said.

“They took me on when I was not on top of the world and I had a fantastic pre-season with a great group of lads.

“It’s a really good set-up. Hampo (Craig Hampson) is the head coach with a hell of a playing background.

“So has Thorpey (Richard Thorpe, director of rugby) and with him playing the same position, that was extremely useful for me.

“Soane (Tonga’uiha, forwards coach) and Glynny (Ben Glynn, lineout coach) have also been extremely useful.

“You don’t just have them coaching you, but playing alongside you and you can learn as you play – it’s a unique experience and you have a different perspective.”
