Not familiar to me either, Jack, but clearly he was a great player and a great sportsman. Extraordinary that he went 3 rounds with Rocky Marciano too!

SPOILERS!!! Dare I say anything? Let's just say that Merv will be smiling.

There's an article by Delme Parfitt in yesterday's South Wales Echo (New Roof Won't Put a Dampener on Wales Grand Slam Mission). No one knows if the GPS thing is just a theory or if Les Bleus are just being naughty and trying to wind us up (perish the thought!). They've just shown some film of Merv on BBC.

I wonder if the French players have machine-readable GPS microchips implanted in their skulls? The mind boggles...

Sheer joy to see those films. I hope Merv has a lovely rugby pitch where he is, bless him.
I expect you've read about the French refusing to have the roof closed whatever the weather because of their players GPS! What would the 70s players have said about that?!

I assume you've got the 14 minute one. I think Gareth's drop goal is a thing of beauty. Too few drop goals in the modern game. Got all nostalgic and watched John Taylor taking "that" conversion against Scotland. Also been watching Jean-Pierre Rives (I had a crush on him back in the day) and remember little Jacques Fouroux?

Oo, er, Swansea, excuse us for living! Buffoonery? How can you call Ryan and Ronnie buffoons? I thought Gareth did rather well on the soft shoe shuffle and it was in good fun. I was going to tell you about the bit of film I found of Wales v France 1978 but I don't think I'll bother now....so yah boo sucks.

Gareth appeared on Ryan a Ronnie, singing and dancing. It's good fun. I tried putting a link in but it came out wrong. If you just go to YouTube and search for Ryan a Ronnie - Gareth Edwards, you'll get it.

Ah yes -- the muddy try -- one of the greats! and how about the match on Saturday? Blood and guts from beginning to end -- one of the hardest matches I've ever seen. England making a full contribution....... but in the end a great win -- it was always going to be won by a mistake by one side punished by a bit of individual magic on the other. And Scott Williams delivered on the day....
