Ben Franks joined London Irish in the 2015/16 season and brought with him a formidable reputation. His medal cabinet is almost at capacity and among his accolades are two World Cup winning mementos. Playing on either side of the scrum, he is an extremely valuable asset to Irish and racked up eight tries during the 2016/17 promotion winning season.
Franks has represented the Barbarians on a number of occasions and continues to add his weight to the front row at Irish.
