Career details:

Mike Horne remained a bit of an enigma at Bath Rugby. The winger, who favoured the wearing of white boots signed for the club upon completing his studies at Bristol University and on the face of it, had a reasonable time crossing for five tries in only nine matches (of which three were as a replacement). After a try-scoring debut in the league at Orrell as a replacement for the unfortunate Simon Geoghegan in an opening day 56pts-15pts success, he was restricted to appearances in the United side. His remaining outings for the side were in friendly matches against Combined Services (two tries at the Rec.), Coventry (at Coundon Road), Wakefield (one try) and the Army (one try). He changed his name in time for the 1997/1998 season, going under the mantle of Mike Kayson and made a further six appearances for one try, against London Scottish in a Tetley’s Bitter Cup win. Despite an excellent try scoring record and England Colts caps, his is a Bath career that remained unfulfilled.
