Bath, England and British Lions (Player) and Worcester Warriors and Ruane (Head Coach)

Richard Hill graduated from Exeter University in 1984 where he played varsity rugby, from where he joined national top flight Bath Rugby in ’83, where he would go on to captain from ’86 to ’88. In 1984 he burst on to the International scene, and received 29 caps between ’84 and ’92.  In 1987 Richard played in the inaugural Rugby World Cup, and again at the second World Cup in 1991, playing in every match for England on home soil, including the final against Australia at Twickenham.

Richard moved into leadership and coaching in 1995, including Head Coach roles at Gloucester, Bristol, RC Chalon, Worcester and Stade Rouennais.  He has also held Head Coach roles with England Students and England ‘A’ between 1996 and 2005.



“I’m not a great reader, but I was completely engaged by Making Clubs Work. Brad tackles the topic of Leadership in a different way to anything else I have read on the subject.  Through his personal and informal style he engages the reader, compelling them to read on, while provoking a lot of thought.  I would classify this book as a great read, and recommend it to anyone with an interest in leadership in any organisation.”
