It all started on a college rugby pitch in 1970, when Fran Cotton & Steve Smith first met in Loughborough.

“We didn’t get on so well at first. I kept thinking, who’s this cheeky so-and-so? But in the end, we hit it off and we’ve been team-mates ever since!”

Not long after they met, Fran recieved his first call-up and cap in 1971 and was joined on the international stage by Steve the following year. Throughout the decade the two friends took part in prestigious tours to South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, The USA and Canada.
