Phil Vickery Bibliography

Philip John Vickery MBE DL  was born 14 March 1976 and is a former English rugby union tighthead prop and member of the England squad. He was a member of England's World Cup winning squad in 2003, playing in all seven matches in the tournament, and is a former England captain. He ended his club rugby career at London Wasps, joining the London side in 2006 after eleven years with Gloucester Rugby.He aquired the  nickname "Raging Bull", due to his style of play. He played in three Rugby World Cups, winning the 2003 tournament. He was England captain in the 2007 tournament, and toured Australia and South Africa with the British and Irish Lions.

He  made his England debut against Wales aged 21 on 21 February 1998, coming off the bench to replace Darren Garforth against Wales at Twickenham in the Five Nations tournament, a match England won 60–26. It was the completion of a rapid rise through the England set-up, after only 34 first team games for his club and just 81 days after his England A debut.

The Tour from Hell Summer in 1998 saw him taking part in the tour of the Southern Hemisphere, part of an England squad which had been severely weakened by injury and player unavailability. In the space of a month, England were soundly defeated by Australia,, twice by New Zealand  and finally by South Africa . There were also losses to New Zealand 'A', New Zealand Rugby Academy, and New Zealand Māori.

The tour had benefits for some players, bringing through future stars of the England side such as Vickery himself, Jonny Wilkinson, Danny Grewcock, Graham Rowntree, Austin Healey, Matt Dawson and Matt Perry, others effectively had their international careers ended. Steve Ravenscroft, Rob Fidler, Jos Baxendell, Spencer Brown and Tom Beim each gained two caps on the tour – and have not played for England since. Richard Pool-Jones, Scott Benton, Dominic Chapman and Stuart Potter only played once for England, on the Tour From Hell.

Vickery himself, recovered from a neck injury in April 1999 and played in that year’s Rugby World Cup. A shoulder injury, however, kept him out of the 2000 South Africa tour. He toured Australia with the British and Irish Lions in 2001 and played in all three tests.

He  was appointed captain of the England squad that toured Argentina in 2002. With many of the top players rested, he led the side to victory against The Pumas in Buenos Aires.He  missed the 2003 Six Nations tournament because of a back injury, but having returned to the team he did well for England on the road to the 2003 World Cup. He played in all seven games in the tournament and captained the side against Uruguay. He scored his first international try when he came off the bench against Samoa in England’s third game of the tournament.

A rib injury prevented him from captaining the non capped match against the New Zealand Barbarians in December 2003. Although he took a full part in the 2004 Six Nations, another back operation in May ruled him out of the summer tour to New Zealand and Australia. He returned to rugby only in late October 2004. On his international comeback, he came on as a replacement against South Africa for the first Autumn Test between the two sides on 18 November 2006. After playing well, he drove over to score the winning try, which was converted by Andy Goode, and England won their first game since February that year.

He was selected on 2 January by new England Head Coach Brian Ashton to captain the side during the 2007 Six Nations and 2007 Rugby World Cup. He was one of only four players to have started both the 2003 and 2007 RWC Finals, the other three being Jonny Wilkinson, Jason Robinson and Ben Kay. Also, on 8 January 2008 he was selected in the squad for the 2008 Six Nations Championship by Brian Ashton. He played every game except for the 23–19 win over Italy which he missed through injury.

On 28 October 2010, he was forced to retire from rugby after suffering from several neck injuries. He played his last game at Kingsholm against Gloucester on 25 September, which is where he started his career.

On 28 May 2012 Worcester Warriors announced that Vickery would join the Club as their new Assistant Forwards (Scrum) coach for the forthcoming 2012-2013 season.Unfortunately after an unsuccessful season, Worcester made wholesale changes in the coaching staff, from head coach through the assistants, and he was one of the casualties.

He know concentrates on Tv commentory and other media work.He was a co-commentator for ITV's coverage of the 2011 Rugby World Cup.He also won the 2011 series of Celebrity Masterchef. 

2008 Six Nations

The 2008 Six Nations Championship, known as the 2008 RBS 6 Nations because of the tournament's sponsorship by the Royal Bank of Scotland, was the ninth series of the rugby union Six Nations Championship.This was the 114th series of the northern hemisphere rugby union championship. The tournament consisted of fifteen matches which were played over five weekends from 2 February to 15 March, resulting in Wales winning the Grand Slam, their second in the last four championships and tenth overall.

In winning the Grand Slam, Wales also won the Triple Crown for beating each of the other Home Nations for the nineteenth time. Wales also conceded only two tries in the championship, beating England's previous record of four tries conceded.  Wales also beat England at Twickenam in their opening game beating them  26-19, to set them on their way.
