Simon Shaw was born in Nairobi, Kenya and was only 17 when he played against Wasps for Bristol. He made a distinct impression on everyone and was soon recruitedby the Wasps where he has represented England at every level. He eventually played in two Lions tours.
Unusually tall for a rugby player, he is called the ‘Gentle Giant’ by the team. He has been voted 2003 London Wasps Players’ Player of the Season, and won the 2004 Zurich Premiership Player of the Season Award. He has been with the Wasps for over 10 years now.
