The sensational rollercoaster debut of Aaron Hinckley

Tonight was the penultimate round of this season’s Gallagher Premiership and with it we saw the first league start of one of England’s brightest talents – Aaron Hinckley.

The 21-year-old back rower was making just his second Premiership appearance for Exeter Chiefs after his recent move from Gloucester.

Below are a series of clips that were posted online showcasing a bittersweet night for this teenage rugby sensation.

It’s clear to see that Exeter wanted to utilise the dangerous running game of Hinckley off of kick returns. Look at the pace on the lad!

In what wasn’t a stellar performance for the league leaders – Hinckley managed to shine in virtually every phase of play that he was involved in. The 21-year-old number eight demonstrated his tenacious carrying ability in this clip below as he scrambles to retain some loose ball from the base of the scrum.

Aaron Hinckley’s dream Prem debut turned to disaster, however, on the hour mark of the match as we see him go down awfully under his knee after another rampaging charge off of a scrum.

The referee halted play almost immediately stating, ‘I think this is serious.’

Exeter have not as of yet updated on the severity of Hinckley’s injury. We wish him the speediest of recoveries and cannot wait to see him back out at Sandy Park with performances like this!
