Number of Appearances: 110

Career details:

First played rugby for St Stephen’s Old Boys XV in the 1921-22 season and gained his place in the 1st XV in the 1922-23 season.  The following season he threw in his lot with Bath ‘A’ and was spotted as an up and coming forward. On occasions when the 1st XV was depleted Len, or “Bender” to give him his popular sobriquet, was called upon and performed admirably.

Len gained his Club cap in the 1923-24 season. He became Bath ‘A’ vice-captain for several seasons.

He was a lightweight forward but made up for it with his reading of the game and speed meaning he was able to rise to the big occasion

Len was a quiet unassuming lad but a sound worker.
