Ahead of the England v Wales crunch match in the Rugby World Cup 2015, Seaford’s Headmaster, John Green was interviewed by Danny Pike on BBC Radio Sussex & Surrey following the success of our ‘two teams’ video
of Seaford’s choir and 1stXV rugby team singing ‘Swing Low Sweet Chariot’.
John Green played rugby for England U16s, U19s and U23s and captained England students for three years. He played professionally for the Saracens from 1992 – 1997 in the back row alongside the likes of England’s Richard Hill, arguably one of the finest back row players for England of all time. John Green coaches the rugby teams at Seaford College and is often seen in his suit and wellies being tackled by one of the players!
