|Rugby union career|
Simpson was born in 1868 to John Simpson of Claverton Street, Pimlico in London. He was educated at Wellington College, Berkshire, before gaining entry to Trinity College, Cambridge in 1887. He received his Bachelor of Arts in 1891, and in 1896 was admitted as a solicitor. He practiced in London from 1900.
Simpson first came to note as a rugby player when he was chosen to represent Cambridge University; and earned a single sporting 'Blue' as part of the Cambridge team in The Varsity Match of 1890. The same year he completed his university education, Simpson was invited, along with several other Cambridge players, to join Bill Maclagan's British Isles team on a tour of South Africa. Simpson played ten matches over the tour, but was only selected for one Test match. Simpson's one and only international cap was the First Test against South Africa, which was played at Port Elizabeth, the tourists winning 4-0.
