Alex is one of the most dynamic and exciting front-row forwards in world rugby and has won 17 caps for England since his debut against Italy in the 2011 Six Nations Championship.
The 23-year-old loosehead prop represented England at the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand - appearing in four of the five matches - and was an ever-present for England during the 2012 Six Nations with a string of destructive scrummaging performances.
Born in New York City, Alex was introduced to rugby at the age of five by his American father after the family moved to England, and Alex played for KCS Old Boys, London Scottish, Cobham and London Welsh before joining the London Irish Academy.
Alex has represented England at every level from U18 upwards, and having represented both England and the USA U19s, Alex was an ever-present at tight-head prop as England U20s won the Grand Slam in the 2008 Six Nations Championship.
Alex was eligible to represent any of three countries at senior level - England, the USA (by birth), and Italy (through his Italian great grandfather) - but cast his lot with England when he made his debut for the England Saxons against Russia at the 2010 Churchill Cup.
Alex's rapid rise to the England senior team was complete in February 2011 when, having initially been called up to the squad as injury cover, Andrew Sheridan's withdrawal gave him his first start against Italy.
For London Irish, Alex has made more than 70 appearances since making his debut against London Wasps in September 2008.
Alex is currently part of the London Irish leadership group having become the youngest player in the professional era to captain the Exiles when he led the side out against Saracens towards the end of the 2011/12 season.
Away from rugby, Alex is currently studying for a BA (Hons) in History at the University of London, Birkbeck College.
Alex is an ambassador for PUMA, BMW, Reflex Nutrition and Compex.
