Profile

Prentice was capped three times by England between 1928-30 but is arguably best remembered as captain of the 1930 Lions side that toured Australia and New Zealand.

He was given the honour of leading what is recognised as the first truly representative British Isles team.

The tour included a total of 28 matches, seven in Australia and 21 in New Zealand. Of the 28 games, 24 were against club or invitational teams. The tourists lost their only Test clash with Australia and only claimed one victory in their four-Test series with New Zealand.

He later served as secretary of the Rugby Football Union and died in 1947 at the age of 64 after a long illness.
