(The headless Skunk vs Villagers in another famous victory – no doubt)
Today we feature Richard Hall known to most at varsity rugby as Skunk. The speedy Eagles and 1st team wing and fullback, epitomised running rugby and was never scared of mad manouvers that more often than not ended with a try scored out of the blue (and white 22). He fully enjoyed his time at the U and was part of the legendary Intervarsity winning side of 2004 and also scored some Western Province B honours.
Skunk is alive and well, we believe he recently got married too! Congrats! Nevermind the minimalistic answers, Mr Hall is clearly a busy man! We couldn’t get a current pic cleared with his PR agent, but are working on it.
