His personal life is consumed by his family and his passion for rugby...hence the company name! Following in his father's footsteps, David joined Saracens at the age of 9. Following a period with Harpenden, Salisbury and Romsey rugby clubs, he was forced to retire from injury at the grand old age of 44. All three son's are currently player's at Salisbury and, despite a short and successful coaching career, he can now be found standing on a the touchline somewhere in Wiltshire. His wife, Nathalie, often wonders if life would be a little less rugby dominated if daughter's were part of the Grosse family!
