|Rugby union career|
Rodber excelled at rugby from an early age, representing his school, as well as local sides Petersfield R.F.C. and Oxford Old Boys. He attended Churcher's College and studied biology at Oxford Polytechnic (now Oxford Brookes University) on Army scholarships.
Rodber was one of the stand out performers during the tour and captained the midweek side against Mpumalanga. His commitment was rewarded when, after injury to Wales' Scott Quinnell, he was selected at No.8 for the first two Tests, both of which the Lions won to take the series 2-1.
He was one of the few Englishmen in the 1990s to be sent off when he was given a red card in a tour game against Eastern Province in South Africa in 1994 when he reacted to a stamp on teammate Jon Callard.
However, the same tour saw Rodber play a vital role in one of England's best away performance of the decade during the 32-15 win in Pretoria on that same tour. "Has one ever seen an England team glisten in a ball-game with such a shimmering and sustained diamond brightness?" purred Frank Keating. "Rodber and his forwards were quite stupendous from first to last."
However, injury dogged his career and he was not selected after the 1999 Rugby World Cup. He retired at the end of the 2000/01 season.
Rodber went into management after retiring and held executive posts including successful stints as regional COO and CEO of Williams Lea. He worked for Middleton Advisors until mid 2013. In July 2013 he was appointed CEO of global workspace providers, Instant.
