The story behind the plaque

Gareth Rees gained his first international cap at the age of only 18 and has been a regular member of the team ever since. His place kicking and his drop kicking have always been assets, as has the strength of his midfield running.

He played in the 1987 World Cup, scoring 15 of his side’s 19 points against Argentina. He was again ever present in the 1991 competition when Canada won many friends in a quarter-final defeat by New Zealand. He was captain of the 1995 squad which finished third in their pool.

The most capped Canadian, he began an English career whilst a Harrow schoolboy, playing in their cup final defeat in 1986. He returned for two more finals, eventually lifting the cup against Newcastle in 1999.
