Richmond fly-half Ross Broadfoot hasn’t ruled out a return to full-time rugby but is enjoying life at the Athletic Ground - for now.

The 25-year-old former London Irish and Leicester Tigers number ten scored a try in Saturday’s 52-28 triumph at Canterbury that made it nine wins in a row for director of rugby Steve Hill’s men.

Broadfoot, who has scored 119 points in eight appearances for Richmond, switched to west London in the summer after graduating from Cambridge University.

He combines directing on field operations for Hill with life in the City and he insists that suits him just fine for the time being.

“I’ve packed quite a lot in to my 25 years and wanted a new challenge when I left university,” he said.

“I work as a commodities broker and I find combining that with rugby is a really good balance for me.

“Returning to professional rugby is at the back of my mind, but I’m really pleased with how things are going at the moment and am more than happy at Richmond.”

Broadfoot started his career at London Irish before switching to Leicester Tigers and then heading to university, but it was his Oxbridge links that brought him to Kew Foot Road.

And even former Oxford University director of rugby Hill’s presence didn’t put him off.

“I knew a few of the guys here through uni and it seemed an obvious choice. Steve was the arch enemy, but he is not the monster he was made out to be,” he added.

Tristan Wesley, James Greenwood, Scott Lowden, Nick Barrett, Guy Thompson and Guillaume Schueller were the other scorers to ensure an emphatic win at the weekend.

And Broadfoot is confident Richmond can sustain the form that has taken to within touching distance of the top two after a slow start in National Division Two South.

“I’d like to think we can carry the momentum on because we are playing some good rugby at the moment,” he added.

“Winning is a habit and we have to keep it going until Christmas.”

Richmond’s next three games: Nov 27 Dings Crusaders (h) Dec 4 Henley Hawks (a), 11 Lydney (h).
