The Order of the Brothers in Law
Shontayne Hape joined London Irish this season on a two year deal from Bath rugby.
He was part of Martin Johnson's 2011 Rugby World Cup squad, scoring a brace in the victory over Gerogia.
The dual international is a strong powerful runner who is able to break the defensive line and his ability to offload out of the tackle makes him a potent attacking weapon. During his time at Bath he made 58 appearances scoring six tries.
After spending six seasons in rugby league playing for the Bradford Bulls and representing New Zealand Kiwis on the international stage, gaining 14 caps, Shontayne moved across to Bath in 2008 signing a three year contract to play at the Recreation Ground. He made his international debut for England in last year's summer tour to Australasia qualifying for the red rose through residency.
