Gareth Chilcott

Gareth ‘ Cooch ’ Chilcott’s hilariously funny rugby anecdotes have been enjoyed at sporting and company dinners all around the world. A natural entertainer (he even does pantomines !), the former Bath, England and British Lions player has always been recognised as one of the game’s true characters.

When in full attack, his famed headband and trademark moustache, coupled with his fearsome visage were never calculated to put his opponents at ease. Always giving 110 %, he gained respect both in this country and abroad and now gains the same respect for his after dinner presentations!
