Rugger buggers with banker's memory

I see that Tim Lacey, a former UBS banker, is trying to raise financial backing to help launch a rugby sevens league.
Lacey - whose City career included raising funds for companies such as Notwork Rail and Vodafone - is happy to be painted as a former Gloucester "rugby star" in order to sell his new project. That's not quite how the local press recalls it.
The thisisgloucestershire website - home of the Gloucestershire Echo and The Citizen - reckons Lacey "warmed the bench on a few occasions during some Cheltenham & Gloucester Cup ties" and "tasted only a few minutes of action".
The cheeky monkey!
