General Info Edit
As one of the strongest loose head props in the world, Andrew Sheridan has built a reputation as a destroyer.

He has spent seven seasons in the front row since switching from lock but when restored to the England Elite Player Squad last July, Andrew had not figured in match action since undergoing left shoulder reconstruction last winter. He returned to the field against Newcastle Falcons in September and at Test level against New Zealand two months later.

Andrew was initially absent from the 2009 Investec Challenge Series because of a dislocated shoulder sustained during Sale Sharks’ Heineken Cup game against Cardiff Blues that October.

He had played in five midweek matches on the 2005 Lions tour to New Zealand before suffering a fractured fibula but this time made the breakthrough into the Test team, appearing off the bench in Pretoria and starting in the third Test that the Lions won 28-9 in Johannesburg.

The big stage was still nothing new to Andrew, who excelled in all seven matches for England in the 2007 RWC and had first toured South Africa with the squad in 2000.

His A team debut was almost two years later, off the bench in the final minutes of the game against Ireland at Northampton. In 2003, he became a member of the Churchill Cup squad in Canada and Japan and signed for Sale Sharks following the relegation from the Guinness Premiership of Bristol Rugby, his previous club.

Andrew’s debut in the competition was for Richmond against Sale Sharks on Valentine’s Day, 1999. He is in his 13th consecutive season in the Premiership and was on the brink of his 150th appearance in mid January.

Bristol’s coaches had instigated his career move from the second row to prop after he had won caps at lock for England Under 16s and 18s, with whom he toured Australia along with Steve Borthwick, Jonny Wilkinson and Lee Mears.

He went on to represent the under 21s in the SANZAR tournament in Argentina in 1999. Full England honours beckoned and he was named as man of the match when making his first start in the 26-16 win over Australia at Twickenham in 2005.

It was a dream that began when he first laced up his boots at the age of nine for Old Elthamians before studying at Dulwich College.
