Jason Leonard OBE has won every one of international rugby’s major accolades – Triple Crowns, Grand Slams and in 2003 – the Rugby World Cup.
A former carpenter, this Barking-born front-row forward’s career spanned the amateur and professional eras, playing for Barking, Saracens and Harlequins.
Over a 14 year international career, Jason amassed a staggering 114 caps. He was also a member of three British and Irish Lions tours – 1991, 1997 and 2001.
In 2003, he became the third player in history to reach 100 caps during his fourth Grand Slam campaign and surpassed Philippe Sella¹s caps record in the 2003 World Cup semi-final against France.
Leonard retired from the international game following England’s World Cup win in 2003.
