Ben Clarke (born 15 April 1968),[1] is a former England international rugby union player.


Educated at Bishop's Stortford College,[2] Clarke played for Bath Rugby from 1992 to 1996, before joining Richmond F.C. as the first £1-million player.[3] He returned to Bath in 2000 for a second spell as captain,[4] before knee injuries reduced his appearances and he left the club for a second time, joining Worcester Warriors as player/coach in 2001.[5]

Clarke toured New Zealand in 1993 with the British and Irish Lions.

Clarke currently works as a money broker for BGC Partners. He worked there alongside Peter Winterbottom, until Winterbottom left in 2008.[6]
