AN England legend was in the crowd watching Henley Hawks’ 65-7 victory on Saturday.

Jason Leonard, the world’s most-capped forward with 119 appearances for England and the British and Irish Lions, was at Dry Leas supporting his hometown club Barking.

The former Harlequins prop, who talked to fans and members of Henley Rugby Club while he watched the game with a pint of beer, was full of praise for the club.

He said: “I know a lot of people involved in the club and I wanted to come down to support my club Barking.

“The facilities here are great and it’s brilliant for the club at this moment in time. They have a good squad and for people who want to watch rugby it’s fantastic.

“Some of the players played well, including some good performances from the fly half and one of the second row.

“It’s great to see at this level such a good quality of rugby being played.”
