Speaker - Austin Healey
Sport and Sporting Speakers, Motivational Speakers
One of the most experienced players for Leicester Tigers, with over 50 international caps for England and over 250 appearances for Leicester.
After 10 seasons with the club, Austin has played virtually every position behind the scrum, and has tasted success in domestic as well as European competitions being in the squad that won four consecutive Premiership titles.
Educated at St Anselm's College, Birkenhead and at Leeds Metropolitan University, Austin represented England at U21 and A level, as well as England Sevens whilst playing for Orrell.
After moving to Leicester he made his senior England debut in Ireland in 1997 and was subsequently chosen for the British Lions tour to South Africa later that year where he played in seven matches including the last two tests.
He has now represented England in 5 Five/Six Nations tournaments and was a key figure in the 1999 World Cup. He was selected for his second British Lions tours, to Australia in 2001 but unfortunately missed out on further caps due to injury.
On his return he played in every game for England until rested for the summer 2002 tour to Argentina. He was very unlucky to miss the final cut when the 30-men England squad for the 2003 World Cup was announced. A non-travelling reserve, Healey made the trip to Austrilia mid-tounrament as cover at scrum-haf, but returned to his club when he was not called to play.
Austin announced his retirement at the end of 2005/6.
In 2000 Austin was voted both Leicester Tigers’ and Allied Dunbar’s Player of the Season and more recently was nominated by Tigers Members as recipient of the Outstanding Service Award for his contribution to the club.
Austin is an extremely entertaining speaker.
