“Wasted talent” – Sir Clive Woodward’s final five England debutants flopped badly

3. Michael Lipman

  • Position: Flanker
  • Total caps: 10
  • Debut: v New Zealand at Auckland, 2004

Lipman was born in London and raised in Australia, representing the New South Wales Waratahs at youth and ‘B’ levels before agreeing a switch to play for Bristol in the Premiership.

After a successful introduction to English rugby he moved to Bristol’s West Country rivals Bath in 2003. His form at the club led to a call up for England’s 2004 summer tour, and he made his international debut in a loss to New Zealand in Auckland.

Injuries curtailed his progress at international level. 

Where is he now? He’s living in Melbourne
