9. J.R.R. Tolkien:

According to a National Public Radio story, the Lord Of The Rings author played at Oxford while at school. Tolkien began playing rugby whilst a student at King Edward’s School, Birmingham, and promptly joined the rugby team upon commencement of his studies in 1911 at Exeter College, Oxford University.

The Duke of Cambridge once played rugby alongside actor Eddie Redmayne during their Eton school days, and his love of the game inspired the Welsh Rugby Union to establish The Prince William Cup in celebration of 100 years of rugby union history between Wales and South Africa.
