|Rugby union career|
Just before graduating from University of Cambridge, Hall commenced his international career on 28 May 1988 against New Zealand in Christchurch aged 22. He made his final appearance on 4 June 1995 in the 24-23 loss against Ireland in Johannesburg in the 1995 Rugby World Cup, where he was captain of the side. In 1989 Hall toured Australia with the British Lions and appeared at centre in the first Test.
On graduation, Hall had joined Cardiff based commercial property surveyors Cooke & Arkwright, and qualified as a surveyor in 1991. He left to start his own company Steepholm Property Advisors in 1994. In 2003, he became a director of PMG Developments plc, and in 2006 became involved in the development of a new stadium for Cardiff City F.C..
In October 2007 Hall left his position on the Cardiff City board after receiving legal advice which informed him that should the club lose its upcoming courtcase he would be put in an awkward position due to his position at PMG Management, another of the club's major creditiors.
On 3 June 2011, Hall re-joined the Cardiff City board after PMG had reached an agreement to turn some of the debt owed by Cardiff City into shares. He would also work with the new Malaysian investors to investigate Sam Hammam's business dealings as the Cardiff City manager.
