Michael Stephenson
Michael Stephenson

Former Bath winger Michael Stephenson joined Leeds Carnegie in 2010 on a two year contract. The 29-year-old previously played at Newcastle Falcons and has three caps for England gained in 2001. 

He made his debut against his former club on the opening day of the season and was an almost ever present over the season, making a total of 30 appearances and scoring 3 tries over the campaign.

In his second season at Headingley Carnegie he was one of the team's most consistent performers and made 18 appearances and scored five tries.  He left the club at the end of the 2011-12 season having made 48 appearances.

At the Falcons Michael was a popular player and was part of the team’s success in the 2001 Tetley Bitter Cup, playing on the wing in the side’s 30-27 win over Harlequins in the final and he repeated this in 2004 helping the Falcons to victory over Sale in the Powergen Cup Final, alongside former Leeds player Jon Dunbar.

He joined Bath in the 2005-06 season, although his debut for them was delayed after suffering a broken leg whilst still playing for Newcastle. He recovered to make his debut in November against Saracens and took the chance to make an instant impact on the side by landing a drop goal. In his first season at Bath he scored 4 tries in 19 appearances and over the next five seasons played a total of 93 games and scored 23 tries. His most prolific campaign coming in the 2006-07 season when he notched up 8 tries in 22 matches.

He made his debut for England during the summer of 2001 as part of the touring side to Canada and America, where the team triumphed in each of the fixtures that Michael played in.

Michael is a player with great pace and skilful footwork and knows how to beat an opponent with his one on one skills, as was demonstrated when he scored against Leeds at Headingley Carnegie during Bath’s win in the 2009-10 season. He is capable of playing at full back or on the wing.
