Andy Lee, MD of Sportingclass commented “I am really pleased Hugh has agreed to join our team. We very briefly crossed over during our rugby playing days – when he was still at Newcastle and I at Saracens but I got to know him well over the Rugby Legends matches and during his role within the commercial team at Saracens. Hugh has a wealth of knowledge in the commercial arena of rugby and I have the utmost respect for him.”
