Budge Rogers

Along with fellow Englishman Ron Jacobs, Budge Rogers lies second in the all-time lists of appearances with 25 between 1961 and 1971 for the Club. At one time during his playing days he also held the record for most international caps for England.

A great servant of the Bedford club, he captained the Barbarians on six occasions, played against the All Blacks at Cardiff Arms Park in 1964, and toured with the Baa-Baas to South Africa in 1969. He was also a British & Irish Lion in 1962 and in later years became president of the Rugby Football Union.
