Richard Thorpe

We dont have Richard Thorpe's picture yet for this season

Although he started playing rugby at the age of 10 at Old Beccahamians RFC, Richard Thorpe credits his initial development as a rugby player to the coaching he received at Whitgift School, the excellent south-east London rugby nursery, where he captained the school rugby team at all age levels.

In 2002 he joined the London Irish Academy where he spent three seasons developing his skills and physique so that he could compete at senior professional level. Quality, consistent performances in the 'A' League confirmed his potential and he made his senior debut on 8th October 2006 against London Wasps.

Since then the dynamic, 24-year-old, back row forward has made 68 appearances and scored 13 tries for the club, firmly establishing himself among the most talented in his position in the Premiership.

Richard represented England Schools at U16 and U18 groups and England in the U19 FIRA World Championship in 2003 and England U21 in the World Championship in 2004.

He studied Business Management at St. Mary's University College, Twickenham.
