Trevor Woodman MBE

England Rugby Winner & Leading Speaker

Trevor Woodman left Cornwall when he was 18 to play full-time rugby at Bath. In 1996, he transferred from Bath to Gloucester, where, over eight seasons, he made 123 appearances in all competitions and scored 12 tries. Up until 2003, with a career battered by injury, Trevor Woodman failed to cement a starting place in the England side. However, he finally sealed a place as the starting loose-head prop with strong performances in the pre-tournament matches before the Rugby World Cup in 2003.

And it was during the 2003 World Cup that Trevor Woodman made such an impact, keeping veteran prop Jason Leonard out of many games, and he is now respected as one of the best props the game has seen. However, despite his fighting spirit overcoming so many injuries, a long-term back injury forced Trevor Woodman to finally retire in 2004 at the age of 29. Since retiring, Trevor Woodman has worked as an ambassador for International Animal Rescue, currently working to help promote the rescue and rehabilitation of suffering bears in India. He received an MBE in the 2004 New Year’s Honours list.
