Gas! Wheels! Lines! And a step!


Wonderful.

And Powerful, knocked many a tackler on their ass.

That was exactly what I was thinking Steve - including carrying one of them over the line on his back in that clip!

One other thing - how quick was Backy to track him!

I was too young to remember him in his pomp but the one thing that stood out from the video is how many passes he took in his stride at the outside centre / fullback position. Not the usual last man on the outside on the end of an overlap

How fast and accurate was Kardoni's pass. In fact, how accurate and deliberate were most of the passes in those clips.


If only those clips were showing a series of recent trial matches!!

I always said he had the best pass I've ever seen.

Not seen anything to change that view since.

England v Scotland, I was on the terrace with a Scotsman next to me with lots ofbeer.

It was a misty day, a pair of Scottish players were heading for the try line without an Englishman in sight.

A certain try when out of no where Rory appears from the right wing runs behind the line and before the Scots could put the ball on the floor Rory jumped up snatched the ball from the scots hand and ran away with it.

The guy at my side went berserk.

Correction: apparently Dodge is second to Rory!

He was great. But I do remember a general feeling that he only really turned it on for England and when the selectors were at WR. Probably unfair. He’s a sound guy in any event.

In his later seasons he acted as a decoy, every opposition pút 2 markers on him so our right wing filled his boots

Barry Evans was my favourite. He filled certainly his boots early on.

Helped that his brother also had a decent turn.

Obviously mrs S has an eye for the lean super fast dashing hero. How the flip she ended up settling for this lard ball is a source of enduring gratitude from me
