    It`s not a problem Barnaby, I was a mere baby when Lewis Jones went pro with Leeds in 1952.lol. He was the first player to score 1000 goals for the club, not equalled until 2009 by Kevin Sinfield.:thumbsup:

    I believe you're right Dai!!

    A great player, who turned out with broken fingers taped up rather than miss a match.
    So loved was he by the Wigan fans that when he scored for London at Wigan, the Wigan fans cheered him anyway!

    The English Union did not offer Shaun Edwards a job, more fool them. Have seen him as a player and he was very good, time will tell if he's a good coach.........

      I believe that he was offered a coaching job with one of the junior sides, but I may be wrong........

      He's won a couple of titles as a coach in his own right with Wasps at club level.

      We Welsh have taken him to our hearts also. He, Rob Howley, Neil Jenkins and Warren Gatland make a superb team.:dbgrtmb:

      Not a surprise, as he is nothing if not passionate.
      You guys will never get less than 110% from him.
