|Rugby union career|
Patrick Bernard Vincent (6 January 1926 – 10 April 1983) was a New Zealand rugby union player and later a rugby coach in the United States. A halfback, Vincent represented Canterbury at a provincial level, and was a member of the New Zealand national side, the All Blacks, in 1956. He played just two games for the All Blacks, both of them test matches against the touring South African team, and was captain on both occasions. He went on to be the Canterbury coach between 1959 and 1962.
Vincent emigrated to the United States in 1967, where he lived the rest of his life. He coached the college rugby team for St. Mary's College of California from 1968 to 1983. Vincent also had a number of administrative rugby roles — he was the President of the Northern California Rugby Union from 1973 to 1976, a charter signer and Founder of USA Rugby in 1975, and a Governor of the U.S. Union from 1975 to 1977.
Vincent died in 1983.
Vincent was one of the inaugural members inducted into the U.S. Rugby Hall of Fame in 2011.
