Not many the right size to play in the backs.Dean Richards of course was pretty nifty. John montgomery played for Scotland,he was a scrum half and Tony Boddy was John Pullin's understudy. I played in the same side as Ackford and Bayfield at a School, ah but no ordinary school.

Richard Jardine was a copper and a back. John Fidler was a copper and DEFINITELY not a back.
Nothing wrong with free speech or having an opinion - as long as it matches mine !!

Didn't Pasty join up for a while? Or am I getting my wires crossed?

I believe he was a centre at school and took the goal kicks, so he sort of qualifies!

IIRC he failed the fitness test. That's because the morons responsible were blindly fixated by their BMI chart which, of course, labels most professional athletes as morbidly obese. :roll:
