Shane Geraghty 2006/2007

Shane Geraghty is the youngest of three sons of sport loving parents. In choosing rugby as his sport he was following the example of his older siblings James and Kieran.

His initial introduction to the game came at the Broadstreet Club in his home town of Coventry. However, it was when he went to the famous Colston's Collegiate School in Bristol that his talent really emerged. In two years at the Bristol college he was part of the team that won the leading St Joseph's (Ipswich) tournament two years in succession.

He joined the London Irish Academy in July 2004 and made dramatic progress to the extent that he was invited to join the England National Academy after a year where he benefited fro the individual coaching of Jon Callard and Brian Ashton.

Last season Shane came of age in more ways than celebrating his 21st birthday. His performances for London Irish pre-Christmas attracted the attention of the England selectors. He found himself being called into the England squad for the RBS Six Nations Championship where he made his international debut in a dramatic victory over France at Twickenham in February. He was awarded a second cap in the game with Wales.

Still only an Academy player he ended the season with 32 appearances for London Irish having scored seven tries and 120 points in all competitions.

Inevitably a number of deserved awards came his way including those for London Irish "Young Player of the Season" and the "Supporters' Club/St Clare's Young Player of the Season".
