Micky Steele-Bodger
It is with great sadness that we report the death earlier this month of rugby legend Micky Steele-Bodger at the age of 93.
A flanker for Harlequins, England and the Barbarians, and long-standing President of the Barbarian Football Club, Micky’s association and support of Richmond spanned many years. He was a life member of the club and it is due to his influence that the Barbarians played a Richmond XV to celebrate the club's 150th anniversary in 2011.
It was a privilege to have known him and our deepest sympathy goes to his family.
