Kieran Brookes

29th Aug 1990 1.85m/123kg Loosehead Prop

Brookes joined Leicester in the summer of 2011 and started the opening two games of the 2011-12 season. Born in Stoke, Brookes spent time in South Africa and Australia during his youth before settling at Kirkham Grammar School in Lancashire. He played club rugby at Fylde, won a County Championship with Lancashire in 2009 and was capped at Under-19 and Under-20 level by Ireland before making his England Under-20 debut during the 2010 Six Nations.

Elevated to the England Saxons squad at the close of the 2010-11 season, he was a member of the Churchill Cup-winning squad. Brookes has played each position in the front row though most of his senior experience has been gained at tight-head. Brookes has been named in Lancaster's 31 man squad for the RWC 2015.

The summer of 2016 saw Brookes become part of the England Saxons squad once more where he travelled to South Africa to face South Africa 'A' where the men in white secured a 2-0 series win.

In June 2018, the England international prop signed a deal with Wasps from Northampton Saints.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Brookes has had 31 European Cups appearances.
