– Jack Kyle, regarded as one of Ireland’s best ever rugby players, has died at the age of 88. Kyle was a hugely talented fly-half who won 46 caps for Ireland and six for the British and Irish Lions. In 1948, the Belfast man helped Ireland win the Five Nations Grand Slam for the first time and in 2002 was voted the greatest ever Irish player. When his playing career was over, Kyle worked for more than 30 years as a consultant surgeon in Chingola, Zambia.
