Andrew Trimble Bio

Andrew Trimble was known for his impressive physicality on the pitch as well as his equally strong running and point-scoring abilities. He played both at wing and centre during his illustrious career and was an established rugby union player both domestically and at international level. Andrew Trimble was inducted into the RugbyPass Hall of Fame in 2021.
 
Born in Coleraine, Northern Ireland in October 1984, Andrew Trimble first played rugby union as a youth when at school. He was first noticed by Ulster Rugby when he took part in the Ulster Schools Cup and it wasn’t long before he was signed by the Irish provincial side in 2005.
 
Trimble spent his entire professional career with Ulster and became a firm fan favourite during his tenure. He currently holds the record for the most tries and the most caps at 76 and 229 respectively. Plus, he was instrumental in leading the side to numerous victories and almost earned silverware in the 2013 PRO12 Grand Final, where Ulster ultimately lost out to Leinster.

On top of this, Andrew Trimble was named in the team of the year for the following season, but had previously been named the Ulster ‘Player of the Year’ back in 2006. He retired at the end of the 2017-18 season but does occasionally still play for amateur side Ballymena and his local team Coleraine.

Andrew Trimble also began his international career in 2005, making his debut for Ireland against Australia in the Autumn Internationals. He registered his first two tries for Ireland in the following game against Romania. From then on he was regularly named for the national team and played in numerous Six Nations Championships and the Rugby World Cups of 2007 and 2011.
 
He won the Six Nations Triple Crown in 2006 and again in 2007, but was a key player in Irelands Six Nations win in 2014, scoring a crucial try in Ireland’s final game against France. He earned his final 70th cap in 2017 and to date is Ireland’s ninth highest try scorer.
 
Outside of the sport Andrew Trimble has interests in business and has invested in numerous tech companies. He is also a devout Christian and has a degree in Theology.
