Over the summer, we will be doing a number of feature articles looking at previous Sharks players who have worn our shirt over recent years.
Our first in the series is Andy Titterrell. The hooker joined the Sharks in 2000, and played his first game made his debut for the club against Auch. He won two European trophies in 2002 & 2005. Also, he played an integral part to the Championship winning side back in 2006 at Twickenham, and he only missed one game throughout the whole season.
He caught the eye of Clive Woodward with a dynamic display on his first start for England A against Scotland A in March 2002, and he won a place in the England Elite Player Squad for 2003.
He took part in the 2004 senior Summer tour, earning his first senior cap, coming off the bench against the All Blacks in Auckland. He added another when coming on as a replacement against Canada in November 2004. In 2005 A year later Titterrell was a surprise selection for the British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand ahead of more experienced players.
