Alex Corbisiero enjoyed a successful 2010/11 season and was rewarded with an international call up for England. The powerful prop forward went on to play four Test matches for England in the RBS Six Nations collecting a winner's medal in the process.
Corbisiero, born in New York City, is the son of an American father and an English mother. He was introduced to rugby soon after his family moved to England.
He joined the London Irish Academy in August 2005 and made great progress under the guidance of former front row forward Neal Hatley and now Head Coach Toby Booth before making his senior debut at Twickenham in the 2008 London Double Header in the 24-16 victory over London Wasps.
Since his debut, Corbisiero has gone on to play 71 matches for the Exiles scoring five tries including a memorable final try in the 38-0 St Patrick's Day Party match against Sale Sharks in March 2010.
Alex was named in the England EPS squad for the 2012 RBS Six Nations.
