Former England international Danny Grewcock is set to become the second inductee into the 2024 Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame.

He now follows the like of Paul Sackey, who was the first star to be inducted earlier in the month.

The 51-year-old made his club debut with Coventry in 1994 and moved to Saracens in 1997. After making 63 appearances for Saracens, he made a switch to Bath in 2001 and in a career spanning 10 years, he went on to play over 150 times for them.

Grewcock also played for England 69 times and was part of the 2003 Rugby World Cup winning squad. He has also made five appearances for the British and Irish Lions.

Currently serving as the High Performance Rugby Manager at Clifton College in Bristol, Grewcock continues to stay engaged with the sport, avidly watching both England and Gallagher Premiership Rugby matches.

"It's a huge honour," he told in a statement released.

"Sometimes you forget what your former job was, you can be very busy working in a school and to then get a reminder that you sent a few years playing in the Premiership is incredibly pleasing.

"To get the honour to come along to Twickenham and watch this year's final is incredible - my family are chuffed to bits. It is a great honour and very pleasing."

Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby Phil Winstanley had high praises for Grewcock.

"Danny was an extremely tough and physical player.

“He was a fierce competitor who was the main stay of both the Saracens and the Bath engine room for many years.

"Danny was regarded as one of the most skilful set-piece technicians of his generation winning the 2003 Rugby World Cup and being capped five times by the British & Irish Lions.”

Widely regarded as the most competitive rugby union league in the world...it can only be the Gallagher Premiership.

The division is becoming more and more exciting as each year passes by so who will be lifting silverware at Twickenham in May?
