Added to his reputation as the toughest rugby player of his day, David Bedell-Sivright also enjoyed the status of Scottish heavyweight boxing champion. And, outside the sporting arena, he saved lives as a doctor and naval surgeon during World War I, but inside it was more likely to add to the casualty toll than reduce it. "When I go on to that field I only see the ball," the Rugby Football Internationals' Roll of Honour quoted him as saying, "and should someone be in the road, that is his own lookout."

His boxing style was based on raw punching power rather than technique, and his reputation was such that no policeman felt like intervening when he blocked Princes Street for an hour while lying down on the tram rails to celebrate a famous victory. When he got up, he went to a cab rank and reportedly tackled a horse.

Bedell-Sivright's aggression always remained confined within the touchlines and ropes. He captained both Cambridge and Edinburgh Universities and made his Scotland debut aged just 19. By the time he captained the British touring team to Australia and New Zealand four years later, he had already won 12 caps and played in the Lions side that visited South Africa in 1903.

After his second tour, he spent a year stock-rearing in Australia before returning to medicine in the UK, having asked himself: "What was I, with an average amount of brains and rather more of money, doing? Simply prostituting the one in order to increase the other. It wasn't good enough."

Bedell-Sivright joined the Royal Navy in January 1915 and was posted to the Dardanelles two months later. He died at Gallipoli, of acute septicaemia, on Sept 5, aged 34.
