Barry John & JPR Williams

I know it's egg chasing but these guys were to rugby what
Messi and Maradona is to football, just hope the guy (Gareth Edwards) to JPR's right doesn't
go soon too.

Constant chipping away of one's youth with thses guys gone.

Couldn't agree more, Andy.
As an egg chaser myself (in my younger days) and still an avid watcher of other people chasing eggs, I grew up on the other side of the border and a decade or so after the likes of Barry John, Phil Bennet, Gareth Edwards etc... and that great Welsh team, but I've seen the videos, heard the stories, bought the books.
