"I attach a team photo for the website that you may not have, the (in)glorious 3rd XV of 1958-59. Few will remember that such an outfit existed, and my captaincy was a consequence of ‘Buggin’s turn,’ not rugby playing prowess, as I was the senior sixth form member and, as one recollects it, a prefect … this last despite a caning by R.V. Metcalfe and temporary loss of my sub-prefect’s stripes (gaining three of the other kind in their stead) in the lower sixth as a result of ducking out from Sunday evening chapel – a claim of agnosticism was no defence in R.V.’s eyes!" - Adrian Osler
