Ben Stevenson is in his second spell with London Irish, a fact that will surprise people given that he is only 21-years-old.
Ben originally joined the London Irish Academy in July 2007 and had an encouraging season, impressing with his distribution and kicking. An attractive offer from Newbury persuaded him to leave in July 2008, only to return in July 2009.
Bournemouth born Ben is a talented half back that can play at either scrum half or fly half. He learned his rugby at Canford and Bryanston schools before going to Loughborough University to read ergonomics. He also had a spell at Northampton Saints.
He has played for England at Under 16 level.
