Sad news about one of our greats.

His position was centre and he played at least 120 times for the 1st XV, making his debut on 22/09/1951 v St Mary's Hospital and played his last game on 05/09/1959 v Wolfhounds. He scored 120 points (39T 1DG) and was capped 11 times by England and 3 times on the British Lions tour of South Africa in 1955.
