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.

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.

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
