Phil Bennett

And now one of the greatest – if not the greatest outright – rugby players of my lifetime, Phil Bennett, has gone.

He was a magnificent fly-half for Llanelli, Wales and the British and Irish Lions. Anyone who has seen his contribution to that try for the Barbarians against New Zealand in 1973 will never forget it.

This is his own view of the try:-

Philip (Phil) Bennett: 24/10/1948 – 12/6/2022. So it goes.
