Focus on Nick Easter

Nick Easter is currently a flanker for Harlequins team and also plays at the same position for the national England team. His position is quite a demanding one and he has somehow been able to retain this position despite his age 34.

He started with period working in London and then joined to Rosslyn Park F.C. Then he quickly shifted to Orrell and finally joined Harlequins where he has played ever since.

Since his joining the club and after giving an awesome set of two consecutive seasons (2004/5 and 2005/6) Nick Easter was awarded the Harlequins Player of the Year. This made way to him joining the winning team of England who won against Italy in 2007 and that was his debut.

Then his noteworthy contribution came on August 4 2007 where he scored four tries against Wales and England emerged victorious in that match. And he became the first no. 8 to make such a score in just one match. In the 2007 Rugby World Cup, he gave outstanding performances in six matches for England and was a great support for his team throughout the tournament.

He was awarded countless Man of the Match awards throughout this spell, as well as netting himself and his team-mates a nice bonus, and picking up the Unibet Player of the Tournament award.

When it came to accolades and awards, the 6’4” Nick Easter never ran out of them. During the 2008 Six Nations, he bagged the man of match award against France and the England team won by 24-13. He was also included in the first half of all the five matches at 2009 Six Nations. He also earned the man of the match title during England tour to Australia in 2010 in the test match and here too, England emerged victorious, although by a hair breadth (21-20).

Currently he is back training with his team after recovering fully from the rib injury and will be appearing against Leicester this Saturday.
