David Paice needs no introduction to the London Irish faithful. With more than 250 appearances to his name, he bleeds green.
Born in Darwin, Australia, David started his rugby career with Brisbane’s Souths Club at under-14 level, before travelling to England on a gap year after finishing his school studies.
He decided to stay in England and soon joined Irish’s Academy in 2003 and rose through the ranks to become a stalwart of the club.
A tenacious front row operator with a swift turn of pace, David has established himself as one of the best hookers in England. Capped by England, Paice led Irish to promotion back to the Aviva Premiership during the 2016/17 Championship winning season. David made his 250th appearance for Irish that season, further underlining his loyalty to the club.
