- Walker dies at the age of 103
- He earned nine England caps and played for Coventry
The Rugby Football Union has paid tribute to the oldest former England and Coventry prop Harry Walker who has died aged 103.
Known to friends and family as H, Harry epitomised post-war England rugby players, who took on the world on Saturdays after just one training session on the Friday night.
He earned nine England caps in 1947 and 48, playing in every Five Nations encounter and against Australia.
Harry was an honoured guest at Twickenham Stadium for the Six Nations England v Scotland match on 14 March 2015.
He said of playing there: “It gets to you a bit Twickenham does. When I stood there on the pitch it was incredible.”
Having begun playing rugby aged 11, he was selected for Coventry where he has continued to be welcomed to regular home games.
