Born in Swindon, Tim Payne started playing rugby at Painswick RFC and began his professional career at Coventry RFC in 1998.
Tim, long the first choice loose-head prop at the Club, is now going into his 10th season at Wasps and is set to make his 250th appearance at some point in the coming months.
He joined London Wasps initially from Cardiff Blues in 2003 and quickly made an impact, helping the club to win the Guinness Premiership and Heineken Cup the following year before adding Premiership titles in 2005 and 2008.
He became the club's most senior prop in 2005-06 after the retirement of Craig Dowd and the switch of Will Green to Leinster.
He won his first international cap against Australia in 2004, and was unlucky to miss out on the 2007 World Cup when he suffered knee ligament damage in the club's Heineken Cup quarter final against Leinster that March.
He has been capped 22 times for England and has represented the British and Irish Lions.
