Harlequins' Prop Will Collier talks you through the perfect line-out lift
Peter Hewat joined London Irish in October 2007 and has made an impressive impact for the club in the Guinness Premiership and in Europe making a total of 46 appearances and scoring 432 points.
At national level Peter represented Australia at Under 21, Sevens and A levels as well as the Prime Minister's XV. In 2007 in his final months in Australia, Peter led the Central Coast Rays to victory in the final of the Australian Rugby Championship (ARC) where they defeated the Melbourne Reds.
Nick Kennedy joined London Irish in 2001 at the age of 20 following considerable success as a basketball player at Portsmouth University from where he graduated in sports science. Since then he has made 140 appearances for the Exiles.
Widely regarded as one of the finest lineout specialists in the country, last season he comfortably topped the individual league for the number of lineouts won with 88 (second place was 79). Together with club captain Bob Casey, they are consistently ranked as the most effective lineout stealing partnership in the Guinness Premiership.
He received his first cap for England in the 2008 Autumn International series and scored a try on his debut, and went on to represent England in the 2009 Six Nations.
Since his arrival at Sunbury in October 2006 Seilala Mapusua has enhanced his reputation as a skilful player with the ability to offload that is second to none and as an effective ball carrier. Add to that a formidable defensive skill that has been seen to such telling effect in the Guinness Premiership and in European competition.
It was no surprise that he received the club's "Players' Player of the Season Award" last week. Seilala has now made 70 appearances for London Irish and scored 15 tries.
He played for Manu Samoa in the 2007 Rugby World Cup and has also represented the Pacific Islands on four occasions.
