Nick joined the London Irish in 2001 at the age of 20 following considerable success as a basketball player at Portsmouth University from where he graduated with a 2:1 in Sports Science. He learned his rugby at Claires Court School in Maidenhead where he played on the wing! He quickly proved his class at London Irish and progressed to the professional squad as an exceptional second row forward. He has made over 50 appearances for London Irish. Last season himself and Bob Casey consistently ranked as the most effective lineout stealing partnership in the Premeriship. He attributes his success to the influence of Steve Williams, Ryan Strudwick and Brendan Venter.
