Joe Worsley is rightfully rated as the best utility back row forward in the country, equally at home in any of the three positions. This ability forced him into the England World Cup Squad in 1999, an ideal bench replacement, following an impressive season with the club.
His long stride makes him deceptively swift and many an opposing back has shown their surprise as Joe has overhauled them.
He joined Wasps at 16 and two years later set the record as the youngest ever to play for the England U 21 team. Last term he quickly settled into an exciting back row partnership with mentor Lawrence Dallaglio and Paul Volley. Joe was deemed unlucky to miss a place in the Lions squad but he performed well with England against the US and Canada and has now won 20 full England caps.
Fortunately, he stopped growing in his late teens by which time he had reached six-and-a-half feet.
Joe has scored five tries for England and looks set to become one of the all time greats of English Rugby.
His 2002 / 2003 season has started in spectacular form and Joe won the Man of The Match award against Saracens in September. However, a hamstring injury, forced him out of the England Autumn Internationals and six weeks of the Zurich Premiership.
No doubt, a legend and going to become one of the all time greats.
