Bob Casey 2008/2009

Recognised as one of the Guinness Premiership's best second rows, Bob Casey has become a London Irish legend in his seven years with the club. He has already made 177 senior appearances and scored six tries.

He captained the Exiles to a Heineken Cup semi-final with Toulouse in 2008 and led them to the Guinness Premiership Final in 2009. His undeniable form earned him a recall to the Ireland 'A' squad and a deserved shot at further senior caps.

Born in Maynooth, county Kildare the big man has enviable leadership qualities, is an exceptional lineout operator and a workaholic in the loose. He made his senior debut for Ireland against Australia in 1999 but his international career stalled after fifth cap against Canada in June 2000.

He came back into the Ireland reckoning by making an appearance against the Barbarians in 2008 and captaining Ireland 'A' to the Plate title at the 2008 Churchill Cup.

Prior to joining London Irish Bob played for Blackrock College and Leinster.

Bob was the club's 'Players' Player of the Season' in 2003-04 and was the London Irish Supporters Club 'Player of the Season 2004-05'. He is a Director of the United Kingdom board of the Christina Noble Children's Foundation.
