Bob Hiller was England's first choice fullback between his debut in 1968 and the last of his 19 caps in 1972. An good place and drop kicker, in that time he scored 138 of England's 199 points, and at the time of his retirement he was the country's leading points scorer. He toured twice with the Lions - in 1968 and 1971 - but did not play in any of the Tests.
Hiller was probably more respected overseas than at home, possibly because he was a clinical accumulator of points in an era kicking was dominating, and he was no stranger to brushes with authority either. He was dropped three times. In 1970 the selectors went to Paris without him even though he had been appointed captain at the start of the season, and England were thrashed; he was immediately reinstated. In 1971 the same happened when he was left out against Wales; the final occasion was in 1972 when he had already decided to retire at the end of the season. He was only 29 but it was proving increasingly hard to juggle rugby with his professional career.
He subsequently went into teaching at Bec Grammar School in Tooting, London, where he had been a pupil, and subsequently at King's College School, Wimbledon.
A good cricketer, he was a double Blue at Cambridge.
