Budge Rogers at the Pavilion

Budge Rogers: A Rugby Life, the long overdue biography of Bedford's very own Derek Prior ‘Budge’ Rogers, one of rugby’s most iconic players, was published in September of this year. The world class flanker lit up rugby grounds around the world in the 1960s and 1970s with his dazzling and determined wing forward play. He captained Bedford RFC for many years, including the year they won the National Cup, toured overseas with England, the British Lions and the Barbarians.

The book is full of interesting stories and amusing anecdotes from the world of top class rugby; Rogers is a true rugby great. In 1969, the Bedford man was the first rugby player to be awarded the OBE. His outstanding playing career was followed by years in administration at the highest level as both Chairman of England Selectors and President of the RFU. Budge Rogers: A Rugby Life provides a unique insight into the life and times of this electrifying wing forward and legend of the game.

Budge is extraordinarily modest about his achievements and the book but has kindly agreed to join us for a Supper Club and Q&A session here at The Pavilion at the Park. Budge will say a few words, sign books and happily take some questions. The book will also be on sale and Budge will be signing copies - great if you're thinking about Christmas presents! Please note that Budge is donating all funds raised from the book to the RFU charity for injured players.
