Connor is from Altofts and can play at either prop or second row. He was selected to join the Rhinos Scholarship in 2012 after being spotted playing for his community club, Normanton Knights.

He has represented and captained Yorkshire 14s and has also played for the Wakefield Service Area. The competitions he has won include Wakefield Schools Cup in 2012 and 2012 with his school Freeston Academy.  In 2014 and 2015 he was selected to play for England Youth and he says captaining England for his greatest achievement to date.

He supports NRL side South Sydney Rabbitohs and American football side Philadelphia Eagles. The player he most admires in the game is South Sydney player Sam Burgess and his childhood hero was Castleford legend Dean Sampson.

He says an interesting fact that people may not know about him is that is the King of Normy! And his ideal occupation away from rugby would be a Calvin Klein model.

He is related to footballer Richard Creswell and he played cricket when he was younger.
