Tom Homer joined the London Irish Academy in July 2008 and went on to make an exceptional impact in his first season with the club.
The Salisbury-born player impressed in the centre for England's unbeaten Under 18 side in 2008 and toured with them to South America that summer. That progress was overshadowed, though, by his dramatic impact on his Guinness Premiership debut for London Irish, scoring two tries against Saracens as an 18-year-old in November 2008.
He was added to England's Under 20 EPS in 2009 and made a fine debut against Wales before being recalled by his club, for whom he has also been a regular point scorer and accurate goalkicker. In 13 senior appearances in the 2008-09 season he scored two tries and 51 points.
In June 2009 he was the leading points scorer in the England Under 20 team that competed in the IRB Under 20 Junior World Cup in Japan.
Tom was also a schoolboy track star who reached the ESAA national 100m finals.
