    Yup that's the correct spelling bob,

    Simon Geoghan was a legend, his tries against england and the wallabies in the early 90's inspired both myself and perhaps my whole generation to play rugby. From all accounts his application and desire were well ahead of his fellow ameteur players at that time. He would fit right in with the ultimate pro's like O'Connell, BOD and Murphy if he were playing for ireland today. He's one of my fav players of all time.

    Captainamercia having grown up watching rugby in the 80's and not in the 70's so only watching barry and benny on video how could i leave my favorite player of that era out.plus j.davies had a better allround game
     
  11. I shoulda said, 'Welcome to the Forum' first. So, Welcome to the Forum.

    Second, as I type this, I'm making all sorts of weird noises, trying in vain to contemplate how you can state that Jonathan Davies had a better allround game than the likes of the aforementioned greats.

    But, I'll let it go. [​IMG]

    .........only if you define as "all round" the inability to defend at all........... [​IMG]
     
  13. richllew

    richllew Guest

    NZFAN don't create Barry John he sucks compared with David Watkins
     
  14. cabbage

    cabbage Guest

    His footwork and skill was as good as benny but J.D was much quicker
    He could get the line moving as good as barry
    His kicking was better than both out of hand and for goal
    He done this with not having the privilege of playing with a good pack

    P.S No way would i put that towny Dai Watkins in my welsh side and thanks for welcoming me to the board cheers

    michael jones
    willie O (DEFENSE...cha....cha..cha!)
    ella brothers(flair)
    nick-far jones
    andrew johns (regarded as the best rugby player....we'll see)
    roary underwood
    gavin hastings
    jeremy guscott
    keith wood (if he's not in the game)

    Kei 'Iongi... this dude is O.G.
    they say he invented the side step, ppl just use to swerve until he came along. He was part of that famous Tongan team that beat Australia 16 - 11 i think in the 70's
