Today marks the birthday of one of Leicester Tigers greatest ever players - 'the legends legend' - David Matthews.
An Oakham-lad, Matthews went onto make 502 appearances in a Tigers shirt - no player has played for the club more times. A powerful back row, he captained the club between 1965-68 and played his 500th game against Northampton on 23 February 1974.
He went onto coach Leicester from 1988-91 before becoming a non-executive director from 1997-2007 and the club president between 2001-03.
2005 saw Matthews awarded life membership and in the words of club chairman Peter Tom:
"He gave his all, as a player and a coach, and he remains a highly influential figure at the club, epitomising all that is so special about the Tigers."
