Former England prop Paul Rendall dies aged 69

Paul Rendall's last game for England came in the 1991 World Cup against Italy

Former England prop Paul Rendall has died aged 69 after suffering from motor neurone disease.

He won 28 caps for England during his Test career which spanned seven years and he represented his country in the 1987 and 1991 World Cups.

Nicknamed “The Judge” because of his role as fines master when on tour, the loosehead made his international debut at the age of 30 against Wales and packed down alongside Brian Moore and Jeff Probyn.

After hanging up the boots, Rendall was affiliated with Bracknell RFC between 1991-2001 and helped the club reach the Championship.

Tributes from the aforementioned Moore - as well as from the likes of Jason Leonard and broadcaster Nick Heath - have flooded in.
