Jim Foat, I don’t think he could bat but he could field.

Some good memories. What about a lock pairing for the rugby?
Who was Dave Sims regular, or Ian Jones, or Steve Boyle?
Long and Brinn were pretty good.


Simmsy went through a few: John Brain, Nigel Scrivins, Richard West, Mark Cornwell & Rob Fidler off the top of my head.

Superceded by Gadd, Smith and Teague. I always remember Mike saying in an Interview, whilst playing for England, that Gaddy should have played at 6 for England.

Very probably true about John Gadd. I cannot remember Richard West at all.

Of all the players we've had 'overlooked' by England over the years, this is the one that irks the most. Wonderful player Gaddy and I still think his partnerships with Teague and Smith/Longstaff were the best back-row combinations we've had in my lifetime.

Jumped on the money train at Richmond with many others when things first started to go professional
The only problem with doing nothing is not knowing when you have finished.

Now coaches Ledbury minis, I think. We shared a house in the early 90s. Lovely fellow.

He always seemed a bit 'laid back' on the pitch - I remember Dave Sims giving him a wake up volley of verbals on a few occasions.

Steve Boyle and John Fidler or Steve Boyle and John Orwin.

All of three of them played for England, probably in Fids' and JohnO's cases, when they were past their very best!
