One of the brightest talents in the English game Alex joined Wasps at the start of the '96/97 season and played a major part in bringing to league championship to the club.
Alex went through a bad patch a couple seasons ago as a series of injuries robbed him of chances for both club and country and upon his return to the Wasps line-up came into a team teetering on the edge of the relegation zone.
Alex took over the kicking duties from Kenny Logan in March that season and for the most part was consistent with the boot. Although he kept the fans on the edge of their seats during the Tetley Bitter Cup Final 2000, it was his conversion at the end of the game that put Saints out of contention.
King was left out of the World Cup squad in 1999, but bounced back to regain his spot. However, a shoulder injury forced him to pull out of Clive Woodward's squad for the tour of South Africa summer 2000.
He returned to full fitness in October 2000 earning an instant recall to the England squad and toured with the squad to America and Canada in summer 2001.
Now a linchpin in the Waps team, the saying goes that if Kingy plays well, Wasps play well. He was undoubtedly instumental in securing the unsurpassed haul of silverware of the last three seasons.
2005-6 is Alex's Benefit Year, marking ten years spent with Wasps, and he is aiming to make it a year to remember by reclaiming the Heineken Cup.
