Tremayne Rodd made 14 appearances for Scotland at scrum-half, the first in an 11-9 victory over France at Murrayfield in 1958. His seven year international career also included Scotland's 0-0 draw with New Zealand at Murrayfield in 1964. Educated at Downside near Bath and at Dartmouth Naval College, Rodd was home fleet boxing champion in the year he made his international debut. He retired in 1965 and the following year covered a British Lions tour as a journalist. In 1970 he made a comeback with Richmond (he joined the club with the aim of getting fit) and was immediately slapped with a life ban by the SRFU who claimed that his writing made him a professional. After serving as a Royal Navy officer and as a merchant banker in the City of London, Rodd inherited the title of Baron Rennell of Rodd in 1979.
