Gary was part of the original intake to the London Irish Academy alongside the likes of Delon Armitage and Nick Kennedy in 2003.
He started playing rugby at the age of 12 with the Kent based club Old Beccahamians where he stayed for two seasons, before joining Bromley RFC.
After taking his AS Level exams, Gary left school to start in the Blackheath RFC academy. He played for Kent and London & South-East at U18 level, captaining the latter. Gary also played for England U18s.
Moving to London Irish in July 2003, he was part of the U19 team that won the U19s National Cup that season. Subsequent hard work on his skills and fitness has made him a valuable addition to the squad, where he has made 45 appearances in the second row.
Gary signed a contract extension in May 2010 that will see him remain at London Irish until the end of the 2012/13 season.
