Alex Corbisiero 2008/2009

Alex Corbisiero was born in New York City, the son of an American father and an English mother, and was intrduced to rugby while at school in Wimbledon. He has all the attributes to have been a Tight End for the Giants or the Jets,however, gridiron's loss has been rugby's gain, though, and Alex is now firmly settled with London Irish after spells with the KCS Old Boys, London Scottish, London Welsh and Cobham clubs.

He joined the London Irish Academy in August 2005 and made great progress under the guidance of Neal Hatley and Toby Booth. he made his senior debut in the Guinness Premiership on 6th September 2008 and has since made 24 appearances, scoring three tries.

Went to the Under 19 World Championships in 2007 with the England Under 19s and his continued improvement saw him start every game of the 2008 U20 Six Nations at tight-head, scoring two tries. The first was an emotional one in Italy, the home of his Neapolitan ancestors.

He capped his 2008-09 season when he came on as a replacement for London Irish against Leicester Tigers in the Guinness Premiership Final at Twickenham Stadium.
