Hermes is a Canadian/Mexican National currently playing for Nelson RFC in New Zealand. A fast and explosive outside back, his speed is his biggest asset with good kick recovery ability and a safe set of hands having played as a wide receiver in Canadian Football growing up. Hermes has been a standout in Sevens Rugby with his speed and manoeuvrability.

With good footwork and his turn of pace, he is capable of finding the tryline and is a strong defender. A fan of good wide running rugby, he prefers to counter with ball in hand rather than going aerial with the ball. He has had success with Quebec Rugby and his performance there was enough to spark the interest of Nelson RFC in NZ.

Seeking a club with a well-organised structure and strong coaches, Hermes will be a handy pick up for any UK club seeking a quick outside back for 2019-20.
