DUSTY HARE, the former Leicester full-back and England's world-record points scorer, has lost his pounds 25,000 a year post as director of rugby at Nottingham three weeks before the start of the new season.

Nottingham, the club Hare played for before joining the Tigers, say they are reorganising and plan an appointment in the chief executive mould, with the emphasis on fund-raising.

It was only last summer that Hare was taken on by Nottingham, who failed to fight their way back into the Courage First Division and were knocked out of the Pilkington Cup by none other than Leicester.

South Africa, building up for the second Test against Australia on Saturday, ran in 11 tries to demolish a Queensland Country XV 63-5 in Mackay yesterday.
