A native of York, Rob Webber has had his fair few injuries, which has in turn limited his opportunities on the internartional stage. However, during the 2012-13 season with Bath he did eventually regain his fitness and a fine run of form saw him rewarded with selection for England’s tour of Argentina and the captaincy for their non-Test clash with the Barbarians. He has made a total 12 caps for the men in white, scoring one try.
