 President Jason Leonard OBE
Jason Leonard OBE is the first player from the professional era to become President of the Rugby Football Union and support for his appointment ranged from his club Barking RFC to former international opponents and rugby clubs up and down the country.

The game has huge affection for England’s most capped player and Rugby World Cup 2003 winner, Jason having made no less than 290 appearances for Harlequins in a career spanning both the amateur and professional game.

He was the youngest ever to pack down in England's front row when he made his debut in 1990 aged just 21. Fourteen years later he retired with a record 114 caps.
