Profile compiled for the Sunbury Centre by John A. Many thanks to John for taking the time to create this and for the extra pics.

Image Player name: Delon Armitage

Born: 15 Dec 1983 in San Fernando, Trinidad

Weight: 86kg

Height: 6' 4"

Position:
Prefers Fullback to Wing
Prefers Wing to Bench
Prefers Bench to Water Boy

Previous Clubs:
Richmond FC – where he studied rugby under the cultured guidance of Richard Mole

Racing Rugby Club de Nice – where he toughened up (mass brawls are mandatory in French rugby from U14 upwards)

Representative Honours:
France U16 (15 minutes!), England U21, England 7s

Most Likely to Say:
- “It can’t be my round yet”

Perfect Companions for a Long Car Ride:
- Justin Marshall, Andrew Mehrtens, Austin Healey and Glen Jackson – no room for Matt Dawson unfortunately.

Trivia by John A:
- The younger Delon, in France, was given a rabbit by the girl who lived next door. Some months later, we went away for a weekend leaving Delon back home. We were never to see Dexter again. I was sure we had left food for Delon. Joel’s guinea pigs were a different story - two females, we were correctly assured. No problem, unless one or both is pregnant on delivery. Many guinea pigs later…
- Delon supports QPR – obviously never been to see them or he would know his legs would not fit between the rows of seats.
- Just to be quite sure: Delon is not half-French and never has been.
