One of the best props in England history, Paul Rendall – a much-loved team-mate and fan favourite – made his Test debut as a 30-year-old in 1984 pic.twitter.com/lDM8Wz7xvk

RIP – The Judge.
My great friend Paul Rendall died today. In the maelstrom of the international front row, he looked after me, and we developed a bond that all front row players know is special.
He was a great man, a superb technician, and I will miss him greatly. pic.twitter.com/mePNKUq4zn

Rendall won 28 caps in a Test career lasting from 1984 to 1991, playing his final game in a World Cup pool match against Italy, after which he was struck down by an Achilles injury.
Nicknamed ‘The Judge’ because of his role as fines master when on tour, the loosehead came to international rugby late after making his debut against Wales as a 30-year-old.
Such an awful illness this disease, we think of Doddie Weir at this time also, another legend of the game.
