Born in Ireland on 22nd November 1974, Kyran Bracken spent his early years in Liverpool, just long enough to pick up a Scouse accent, something he’s very proud of. Age 13, he earned a rugby scholarship to Stonyhurst School in Lancashire, where fellow 2003 Rugby World Cup winners Will Greenwood and Iain Balshaw also went.
After picking up three A-levels (A, A, C), Kyran studied Law at Bristol University, turning down an offer from Oxford University in the process. Working hard and playing hard, Kyran achieved a 2.1 and was offered a place at Bristol Law School. He then commenced work as a trainee solicitor whilst playing rugby for Bristol RFC. With the game going professional it wasn’t long before Kyran was snapped up by the star studded Saracens based in Watford, where he played out his career, enjoying two spells as captain.
Kyran lives in north London with his wife Victoria and their three boys, Lachlan, Jack and Charlie.
