The Player

World Cup winner Kyran made his debut for England against the All Blacks in 1993 sustaining a nasty ankle injury following a stamp from Jamie Joseph. The severity of the injury sidelined Kyran for three months. However, he showed his determination and ability to triumph in the face of adversity by fighting his way back to full fitness and back into the England team.

He had a very successful international career winning 51 caps and had the privilege of captaining England for three Tests. In 2003 he triumphed in the world cup and along with the rest of the squad, he was honoured by the Queen and is now an MBE.

Early in his career Kyran played for Bristol RFC after flirting with the idea of a football career with Liverpool FC and a Rugby League career with St Helens. But Kyran committed himself to Rugby Union when the sport turned professional.

He signed for Saracens in 1996 and was part of the team that won the Tetley's Bitter Cup against Wasps in 1998.  He captained the club for two seasons and his contribution to English rugby has been immense. Since his retirement at the close of the 2005/06 season his quality as a team player and a man has been well acknowledged.
