2012 Tom Croft

Tom Croft was born in Basingstoke, England on 7th November 1985. He started playing rugby as an 11-year-old and spent five years at Newbury RFC before joined the Tigers Academy set-up.

Tom made his Tigers debut just a week after his 20th birthday in November 2005. He made his big breakthrough in 2006-07, beginning the season as one of the stars of the Middlesex Sevens, and going on to make 13 appearances for the first XV, scoring three tries, including a spectacular long-range effort in the EDF Energy Cup Final victory against the Ospreys.

Tom's form at the start of the 2007-08 season, highlighted by two tries in the Guinness Premiership victory at Harlequins, led to his England Test debut in the Six Nations win over France and he joined the summer tour to New Zealand.

In 2008-09 Tom was nominated Player of the Year in the Guinness Premiership awards and Young Player of the Year in the PRA event, he was named Man of the Match in England’s win over France in 2009 and started both the Guinness Premiership and Heineken Cup Finals in the Leicester second row.

In 2010 Tom played in a third successive Premiership Final with Tigers, this time back in his back-row slot.

Tom reached senior international status with England during the 2008 Six Nations and received a call-up to the British & Irish Lions squad for the trip to South Africa in 2009 after suspension ruled out Irish flanker Alan Quinlan. Tom wasted no time in making an impact, scoring a debut try against the Golden Lions and adding two tries in the first Test.
