Jack Kyle

I met Jack on a number of occasions. I asked him, what is the difference between the game then and now? He said that if he had received a pass from his scrum half and found forwards in front of him, he would have thought that they were lost. The unanimous  description of him, in life and in death, is “gentleman”. His rugby skills will never be surpassed. His service to medicine and to  the people of Zambia were astonishing. He was erudite and wonderful company.

Young medics and rugby players could have no better role model.
