  • Winn earned eight England caps
  • Was also a talented cricketer 

The Rugby Football Union is saddened to learn of the death of former England wing Christopher Winn, who has died aged 90.

Chris played eight times for England between 1952 and 1954, scoring three tries and sharing the 1954 Championship. He also played for Rosslyn Park.

Multi-talented, Chris also played cricket for Sussex and Oxford University, featuring in 59 first-class matches in England.

"It was with great sadness that we at the Rugby Football Union learned of the death of England wing Chris Winn," said RFU President, John Spencer.

"Chris was the consummate sportsman, playing both international rugby union and cricket, and epitomised all that was best in rugby during the amateur era.

"A try on his Test debut against South Africa will have remained a treasured memory and Chris will be much missed by the sport."
