Born in Darwin, Australia, David Paice started his rugby career with Brisbane's Souths Club at U14 level, before travelling to England on a gap year after finishing his school studies.
What was meant to be a year long stay turned into a permanent move after he joined the London Irish Academy in July 2003 and went on to become an integral part of the club's U19 side that won the National Cup that season.
A tenacious front row operator, with a swift turn of pace, he has established himself as one of the best hookers in England.
With 184 first team appearances and 13 tries under his belt, Paice has become a regular in the Exiles' line-up over recent seasons and his fine performances have led to international honours for his adopted country.
