Anthony Watson

We dont have Anthony Watson's picture yet for this season

Still only 19-years-old, Anthony Watson last season became the youngest player to ever appear for London Irish in a Premiership match. He made two appearances and showed his worth on both occasions.

He played for England in the U20'S 6 Nations Championship in January/February at the age of 17. He finished as the tournament's second top try scorer behind London Irish team mate, Marland Yarde, where the two formed a lethal combination in the England back three.

Anthony was shortlisted for the prestigious BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year 2011 after a stellar year of rugby.

He also picked up gold for England Rugby Sevens at last year's Commonwealth Youth Games in the Isle of Man, and represented England U18 in the FIRA/AER Championships, scoring a last-minute try in the semi-final to beat Wales.

On December 3, 2011 he represented a 'Northern Hemisphere XV' at Twickenham for a special charity match, playing alongside the likes of Serge Betsen and World Cup winner Will Greenwood, with all proceeds going to Help for Heroes.
