Charlie Gower joined the London Irish Academy in July 2006.
Born in Munster in Germany, Charlie learned his rugby at Salisbury Rugby Club and at Wellington College. He started out in the back row at Number 8 before finding his preferred position was in a midfield role in the backs.
Over the past three seasons under the direction of his Academy coaches and Mike Catt, the 22-years-old centre has worked at developing his skills. He was promoted to the senior squad in July 2009.
Charlie has represented England at Under 18 and Under 20 levels.
