Debut tries have become a habit for Noah Cato, the full of flair Saracens wing, who scored, first time out in the Guinness Premiership against Leeds Carnegie in September 2007 and then bagged a try in his opening match for England Saxons in the Portugal match at Edgeley Park in January last year.
A quick and powerful adversary, Noah enhanced his pedigree by starting in the Churchill Cup final against Ireland A in Denver last June, already having been among the England squad for the IRB World Sevens Series in 2006-07.
He was born in Brighton and educated at Hurtspierpoint and the University of Hertfordshire and also impressed with two tries against Argentina in the 2007 Under 19 World Championship during his first season at 15-a-side international level.
Noah then ran in six tries in five matches when England Under 20s won Grand Slam in 2008 and extended that aggregate total to eight in seven games during the subsequent IRB Junior World Championship.
His grandfather was the eminent Glen Wilson, a left half in old parlance and one of the significant figures in the history of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club. By 2002, he had been among only four Albion captains to lift a trophy and was a tough tackling and creative player, not unlike Noah in the union game.
As an additive to his debut try theme, Noah pounced for another in his first match at Wembley last September, racing 80 metres to the Northampton Saints' line when Saracens won 19-16.
