Hare currently holds the world record for points scored in a first class rugby career with 7,337 points.
He retired from club rugby after the 1989 cup final loss to Bath, and is now the chief scout at Northampton Saints. Previous to this job, Hare was a farmer in South Clifton, Nottinghamshire and had been since a young man carrying on the family business. However, Hare sold the farm in 2001 to take a full-time job at Leicester Tigers working for the academy and latterly as head scout.
In January 2010 it was announced that he was to join Northampton Saints.
Hare was also a good cricketer, and he played ten first-class and seven List A matches for Nottinghamshire between 1971 and 1977. He played regularly for the Nottinghamshire Second XI and Under-25s between 1969 and 1978.
