WORLD RUGBY HALL OF FAME - INDUCTEE NO. 136 - ROB ANDREW (Cambridge University, Nottingham, Wasps, Newcastle, England, British and Irish Lions)

Born: 18 February, 1963 in Richmond, North Yorkshire

Rob Andrew made a huge contribution to English rugby as a player, director of rugby and then RFU administrator before taking up a career in his second sporting passion, cricket.

He made his international debut for England as a fresh-faced fly-half in 1985 and went on to play an integral part in their revival during the Geoff Cooke/Will Carling era.

Andrew featured in three Grand Slam-winning sides in the 1990s and started the RWC 1991 final against Australia. He also played in the 1987 and 1995 editions, landing a memorable drop goal in the latter to defeat the Wallabies in the quarter-finals.

A superb kicker off both feet, the Cambridge Blue amassed 396 points for England and a further 11 in five test appearances for the Lions across the 1989 and 1993 tours.

Andrew announced his international retirement in 1995, at which point he left Wasps to begin a decade of service to Newcastle, whom he led to the inaugural Premiership title in his dual role as player/director of rugby.

Inducted in November 2017
