Profile

After playing in the Glasgow and Twickenham legs of the HSBC Sevens World Series in May 2012, Dan Bibby helped Great Britain to win the World University Championships at Sevens in Brive two months later.

Then a student at Cardiff Metropolitan University, he was mentored by Russell Earnshaw, the England Sevens assistant coach at the time, as Great Britain beat South Africa 35-17 in the final with Dan scoring two tries and landing five conversions.

He signed full-time for England Sevens earlier in the summer of 2012 when he also swooped for two tries as European champions England retained their Moscow title by defeating France 21-15 in the final.

A product of Kirkham Grammar School, Lancashire, he was player of the tournament for Sale Sharks in the JP Morgan Asset Management Sevens at Edgeley Park in July 2011. In the 15-a-side game he appeared for Fylde twice at fly half in 2008-09 and five times in 2009-10, as well as for England Students.

In 2012-13, he added four IRB tournaments to his list – Dubai, South Africa, New Zealand and the United States – and scored five tries in the Gold Coast event last October. He began with a hat-trick against Spain and made another two touchdowns in the final game against South Africa when England secured a third-place finish.

He contributed three tries and three conversions in Las Vegas in January this year. Dan added two conversions in Wellington and two tries and two conversions in both Tokyo and Hong Kong and scored 129 points overall, including 15 tries in the 2013-14 IRB World Series.
