Former Northampton Saints wing Andy Hancock, who famously scored one of the greatest individual tries by an England player, has died at the age of 80.

Hancock passed away peacefully at his home on February 9.

He won three caps for England in the 60s, with his most iconic moment coming against Scotland in 1965 when he received the ball in his own half and then went on to beat four defenders to score a fantastic solo try.

The moment earned England a 3-3 draw and denied Scotland a first win at Twickenham in 27 years.

Hancock also appeared 73 times for the Saints between 1964 and 1968, before playing for Cambridge, Stafford and Chelmsford in the latter part of his career.

He then went on to work as a chartered surveyor and town planner.
