Some great vids of great running rugby.

The answer to our prayers?

Back to basics, but done well and at pace?

You can go way back on this board and see the same point being made.
What a player David Duckham would have been had he had the benefit of modern fitness training and nutrition.

I still think in an alltime England XV, Duckham and Jacko would be high on my picks. In fact, Underwood apart, I can't think of anyone who would come close. Johnny May has all the work rate, speed and effort to be very special, but...????

For old times sake I had a look at the 1974 final Cov Vs LS. Two magical moments from David Duckham and how Tim Barnwell could motor. Not bad when the pre match diet was still for some a pie and a pint. Mine was a pint of Ind Coope and Steak and Kidney Pie in the White Lion. Then on the bus to the Guild's Tin Shed in Coat of Arms Bridge Rd. H was still playing in 74 as was the great Bill Gittings.
