Phil Vickery - tight-head prop
Phil Vickery
Height: 1.90m (6ft 3in)
Weight: 120kg (18st 12lb)
Age: 31 Caps: 59

Named captain following Brian Ashton's appointment as coach, "Raging Bull" has developed into a quiet and commanding leader.

Vickery was banned for two games in the group stages and despite being under huge pressure from Matt Stevens, he has justified Ashton's faith in him.

A veteran of the 2003 World Cup win, the Wasps tight-head bears a Chinese character tattoo which roughly translated says "I'll fight you to the death". He also has a clothing range named after him.
