Rugby speaker and former England player Jeff Probyn is known for his career as a prop in the 1980’s and early 90’s. Born in Bethnal Green in London Probyn spent time playing for Askeans, Streatham and Wasps and made his international debut for England in 1988. Now retired Jeff Probyn is a commentator and sports speaker as well as working in rugby management.
An innovative and impressive rugby speaker and player Probyn was known for his low scrummage style, a technique so effective that it led a number of his competitors to removing the sleeves of their playing shirts believing that he used them to give him leverage and power. Their efforts were for nought however as Probyn continued to play in his unique style and became renowned as a force to be reckoned with in both domestic and international games.
Retiring in 1993 after winning 37 caps for England Jeff Probyn has gone on to work as a rugby speaker in a number of capacities; not only does he regularly contribute as a sports speaker and Full Contact expert for talkSPORT radio but he has also been an active member of rugby union coaching and management.
Probyn spent time as a member of Club England, the Rugby Football Union Committee where he worked as a rugby speaker and assisted in the running and management of the group. Alongside this role Jeff Probyn also managed the England Under-21 team. Whilst in this role Probyn played a vital role in instating Clive Woodward and Andy Robinson as coaches in representative rugby, he returned to the RFU in the 2000 and once again played a pivotal role in electing Clive Woodward as the England coach and sat on the board that, in 2006, reviewed and replaced England’s coaching team with that led by Martin Johnson, who would go on to lead England to a World Cup victory.
As well as working as a sports speaker Jeff Probyn is an Honorary President of the rugby charity Wooden Spoon.
