Image Player name: Bob Casey

Position: Second Row

DOB: 18/07/78

Weight: 19st 3lbs

Height: 6' 7"

Previous Clubs: Leinster, Blackrock College, North Kildare

Honours:
Ireland U19, U21, U25, Ireland A, Ireland (5 caps), Barbarian

Facts:
Bob joined the club in July 2002 from Leinster but has not been capped by Ir eland since he moved to Irish. His five caps are pre-London Irish.
First cap for Ireland against Australia in 1999 World Cup and made his first start at international level against England at Twickenham in the following year's Six Nations, but has not been capped for Ireland since that heavy defeat (the Ireland manager was replaced then too).
Two knee surgeries during the 2000 season meant that he lost both his Ireland spot and his regular Leinster team place.

Trivia:
Apparently likes to be third on to the pitch. Bob is a Director of the United Kingdom board of the Christina Noble Children's Foundation ( http://www.cncf.org/ )
With his work for CNCF, Bob visited Vietnam in the summer of 2004 to visit schools and orphanages.
According to an interview, he'd like to work in marketing after his rugby career has finished

Quotes:
On playing for Irish: "I think playing at this level every week has improved my game dramatically, you get more matches here and that will always improve you, the team of the season thing was flattering, and its nice to be recognised, but more important than that to me is that the team is going well at the moment in both league and cup, and we have a serious chance of winning a trophy this season."

this isn't strictly related to the profile but is that Bob's arm in the bottom left of the pic below?

very long isn't it? :shock: Might explain some of those lineout wins!

Trivia: Without bending over Bob can touch his own shin with his right arm.
