Jonathon Fisher started playing rugby at the age of 12. It was when he went to Wellington College that his exceptional talent befanto be developed. The College has produced some fine back row forwards down the years and Fisher is continuing the tradition.
The Kingston-Upon-Thames born player joined the London Irish Academy in 2007 where he benefitted from the specialised coaching and exposure to experienced senior professionals.
In an England context he made great strides in 2006-07 to reach the Under 19 World Championships in Belfast and then to secure a starting spot in at blindside in the England Under 20 side which he filled in all five games of the 2008 Six Nations Grand Slam campaign.
Jonathon made his breakthrough into the London Irish senior team in 2008-09 with 10 appearances in the Guinness Premiership and European Challenge Cup competitions.
Jonathon is an outstanding all-rounder too and has also represented Surrey at tennis. Mike Skinner ' The Streets frontman, not the former England flanker ' is one of the people he'd most like to meet and New Zealand's Richie McCaw is his rugby inspiration.
