Jersey-born Matt Banahan switched from the pack to the wing with devastating effect, scoring 16 tries in his debut season for Bath Rugby.
Formerly a back-five forward in the London Irish Academy, Banahan's pace and power are ideally suited to the wing, and have seen him develop into a devastating threat out wide.
His development has not gone unnoticed by England manager Martin Johnson – and at 22 years old he was capped twice during the summer of 2009, scoring a try on his debut at Old Trafford as England beat Argentina.
He has gone on to represent England 12 times to date, scoring four tries in the process, and was selected in Martin Johnson's Rugby World Cup squad to travel to New Zealand.
