Born in Manchester; Simon McIntyre started playing rugby at Broughton Park RFC, aged 8 and progressed through the grassroots scheme. He began his professional career at Sale Sharks in 2009 as an Academy Player.
McIntyre has already made a strong impact since joining London Wasps in the summer of 2011 having made 31 senior appearances to date and was rewarded last season with a contract extension.
Having made the switch from tight to loose-head, the youngster is making impressive inroads into Dai Young's match-day squad, also showing his eye for the try-line with two well taken scores against Worcester Warriors both at home and away.
McIntyre is tipped as a young prop with plenty of ability to grow into a first team regular under the expert front row guidance of Dai Young.
Talented in the loose, McIntyre has represented England at U18 level.
