D13 Rugby, Dementia and the Fight of My Life
The Bath Festival 2022
Steve Thompson (Unforgettable) is a hero to many for his illustrious career, not least the part he played in England’s 2003 Rugby World Cup victory. Steve, however, remembers nothing of that win due to an early onset dementia diagnosis in his early 40s, largely attributed to the insane physical nature of the sport he owes so much to. He talks to Bath Rugby’s Club President John Hall about his life in rugby and his hopes and fears for the future.
