The Game's Gentle Giant

"Being the 30th England player to reach a half century of caps in the autumn of 2008 prefaced a less predictable but ecstatic honour for Simon Shaw MBE, who became the most senior player to make his debut in the history of the British & Irish Lions when appearing twice against South Africa last summer. This ‘gentle giant’ of rugby looks set to make his 4th World Cup in 2011.
