In 2007 he suffered a detrimental neck injury in a Heineken Cup pool game and was told he could never play rugby again. This was a man who had spent a decade playing for Northampton, the club he had grown up in to rise to co-captain, a man whose life revolved around the game he loved, a man who had risen to the great heights of winning the Rugby World Cup with England in 2003. But he came back. After announcing his immediate retirement and taking a job with Brive, Steve returned to the rugby pitch and worked his way back onto the England side to make it to another Rugby World Cup. Steves story is one full of surprises - a very difficult upbringing, a down to earth and fun personality, a career that has lasted longer than any other England hooker - and that is with a neck full of metal.
