Epsom in Surrey is the birth place of English Rugby Union player Nick Easter. He was born on 15th August in 1978 and is going to celebrate his 37th birthday this year. He has seen a lot of highs and lows in his career. But one thing that has kept inspiring in the game over his long career span is his urge to play for the England side. He is keen on making it to England national coach Stuart Lancaster’s plan for his team in the upcoming World Cup. The brother of Sale Sharks player Mark Easter wears the number 8 jersey for the Harlequins and is an important member of the squad. Nick Easter has been a responsible captain whenever the onus was on him and stood by his teammates whenever they needed him. The Harlequins coaches and officials have always backed him and believed the fact that he could fight his way back to the English squad.
Much like Connor O’Shea, the manager of Rugby of Harlequins, Nick Easter has heavily increased the number of his fans. The most astonishing thing for a player of his age is the fact that he has been able to maintain his position regularly in the back row of his team ahead of young talents like Luke Wallace, Jack Clifford and Joe Trayfoot. Nick’s international career bloomed in the period from 2008 till 2011 but he was dropped from the side by Lancaster even though he was regarded the best number 8 in his country. It has been hard work for the star performer till now as he has been fighting all odds to be at the peak of his abilities. The fans will be hoping for a fairytale comeback for their former superstar in the coming seasons. The press shall keep him in scrutiny throughout the process.
