from the Times, with supplements: After graduating he joined Dauntsey’s School as head of geography. He had offered to give up rugby to concentrate on teaching but was roundly told that his sporting prowess [ Oxford rugby blue] was the main reason for his employment by the sports- mad, MCC member, headmaster. With this endorsement, Rimmer joined Bath RFC in 1959... He captained Bath in 1962-63 and tried to bring a sterner approach to training at a time when the West Country club were very inconsistent.
He made his England debut at Twickenham in January 1961 against South Africa, which the latter won 5-0. His international career was cut short by a tendon injury.
