The Cambridge Blue served as a player-coach until 1999 and helped steer the side to the Premiership title the same year. Injury eventually forced his retirement but he continued to coach the Falcons until 2006 when he quit the club to join the Rugby Football Union as their Director of Elite Rugby.
Capped 76 times by England, the fly-half notched 407 points during a 12-year international career and memorably dropped a last-minute drop goal to seal a 25-22 victory over Australia in the 1995 Rugby World Cup quarter-finals. He also toured with the British & Irish Lions to Australia in 1989 and again to New Zealand in 1993.
The prolific winger went on to score a record 49 tries in 85 appearances for his country during a 12-year international career spanning 1984-96. He also claimed six Test caps for the British & Irish Lions on two tours and appeared in three Rugby World Cups.
