The 50 greatest Welsh Rugby Players

Post by kk20gb30 » Wed Dec 29, 2021 11:16 am

This is usually the time of year for lists and retrospectives, as nothing else is happening (would that be the case right now....).
The following list from WalesonLine however is well worth a look (for me) as it evokes both some names and memories seemingly long forgotten.

Seemingly heading rapidly toward senility .....Not long or far to go now , in fact, getting worse daily.....

Not a bad list
Surprised Gethin Jenkins was as high as he was.
I would have nudged Graham Price a little higher but there is stiff competition at the top of that list

My pick is Dai Morris at No 20. À blindside forward of small stature when compared to today’s players. He was a hard-as-nails indefatigable player who was one of my unsung heroes. They don’t make ‘‘em like him any more.

As Max Boyce said, “Tommy David, he very big man, none like him out in Japan”! Surely a place should’ve been found for him:
