David Duckham Rugby Playing Career
From 1967 to 1979, he played 12 seasons for his club, Coventry. He thus made his international debut for England against Ireland in 1969 and quickly established himself as one of England’s best centers playing alongside John Spencer. His game was marked by pace, swerves, sidesteps, and an ability to wrong-foot his opponents. Although, this came, at a time when the English team was struggling especially against rivals Wales. In the late 1960s and thereafter, he was playing on the wing for his country and in 1971 was part of the successful British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand. Being encouraged by coach Carwyn James, he found an attacking freedom that was lacking in the English game.
On that tour, he scored 11 tries in his 16 games. In the 1973 Barbarians side, he was the only English back that beat the All Blacks 23-11 at Cardiff Arms Park. In the first half, he made a run that has become part of rugby lore, that brought gasps and cheers from a Welsh crowd more accustomed to regarding him with hostility. When David broke the All-Black defense, he appeared to confuse the commentator, Cliff Morgan who did not know whether David had sidestepped or dummied. After the match, he was given the nickname ‘Dai’ by the Welsh fand. This was because he played like one of their own. However, he was injured and unavailable for the 1974 British Lions’ tour to South Africa. His best performances arguably were overseas or for Coventry. In 1976, he made his last appearance against Scotland at Murrayfield.
A Retirement Career from Rugby
After having a rugby career, he went on and worked for building societies and banks and as director of marketing for Bloxham School. Moreover, he wrote an autobiography called Dai for England. And because of his services to rugby, he was awarded the MBE.
