Julian White is regarded as one of the most powerful forwards in the game. He is renowned for his skilful scrummaging, though he lacks the mobility of Phil Vickery and Matt Stevens, who he competes against for the Tighthead starting slot.
As a youngster he played mini and junior rugby for Salcombe and had played in the same senior side as his father, a former
Plymouth Albionplayer. He served his rugby union apprenticeship with Okehampton and Plymouth Albionand had a spell in New Zealand with Hawkes Bay and Canterbury Crusaders. He made his debut for Hawkes Bay in August 1996 and appeared in the NZ Provincial Championship. He made his only Super 12appearance as a replacement for the Crusaders against Natal in Christchurch in April 1997.
Returning to the UK, White played for Bridgend in 1998/9 before moving to Saracens in 1999. He swiftly made his Premiership debut in the 28-23 defeat of
London Irishat Vicarage Road, Watford on the opening weekend of the season.
White made his England debut against South Africa on England's Summer
2000tour there, when first choice Phil Vickery was injured. Since then, White has been a useful squad member, and has gained caps as a replacement and when Vickery was injured or rested. He appeared in his first TwickenhamTest against Argentina in November 2001, playing until half time when he was replaced by Phil Vickery.
He toured North America in the summer of 2001, forming a solid front row with
Graham Rowntreeand Dorian West.
At the start of the 2002 season he transferred back to the West Country with
Bristol Shoguns. This occurred after a protracted affair where White had attempted to get out of the contract he had signed with Bristol. White did not endear himself to Bristol supporters as he had tried to break out of his contract to join bitter local rivals Bath. In the event, White did become a Bristol player [ [http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/low/rugby_union/1483183.stm BBC news report] ] . Along with team-mate Daryl Gibsonjoined Leicester Tigersfor the 2003-04 season after Bristol were relegated. Replacing the retiring Darren Garforth, his Leicester debut was held over as he was in Australia on duty with England at the Rugby Union World Cup.
In 2004, with Phil Vickery recovering from a back operation and after an operation on his knee, Julian grasped the opportunity to demonstrate his scrummaging skills in the England front row during the 6 Nations and the summer tour to the Southern Hemisphere.
He was one of the players named in the 2005
British and Irish Lionssquad to tour New Zealand, and started in all three tests.
