BEN Sparks is aiming to prove that he’s a cut above the rest as he chases his dream of breaking into the professional game.

The 22-year-old, who works as a greenkeeper at Cumberwell Park Golf Club near Bradford on Avon, made his debut for Gloucester on Tuesday evening.

Sparks featured as a substitute as the Cherry & Whites beat Fiji, who included 13 players which played against England last weekend, 31-29 in a friendly at Kingsholm.

Back row Sparks, a former Corsham School pupil, plays part-time rugby for Forest of Dean side Cinderford.
