What ever happened to Phill Bennet and Will Carlin?

Carlin was as nice as pie, might be englsih but it wern't his fault to be born on the wrong side of the tracks.

Bloody good bloke is Carlin.

AWJ will leave a big hole when he retires, for me best ever Welsh 2nd row (at least since the '60's when I started watching); with a nod to Brian Price and Bob Norster who were also both pretty handy in the boilerhouse.

Don't forget Rhys Stephens David!!! ....Rhys S and Roy John ...one of the best pairings Wales has ever had ...Rhys held 'em all down in the lineout and Roy jumped like a salmon for the ball , played for bloody Neath mind. With my afan shirt on Alan Martin was the best second row goal kicker so there! :D

One WD Thomas from Bancyfelin was vastly underrated, 3 Lions tours in an era when few Welsh forwards were selected. A quiet man, lost only once to England too :D :thumbup:

I'll go with him too met him a couple of times a real gent, also played for the lions before he played for Wales. but OSR has a point too what will we do with out AWJ, an awful big hole will have to be filled that's for sure,

me too, the most consistent performer ever to pull on Welsh jersey.

His form was iffy after injury earlier this year but by the end of the domestic season he'd got over it, MOM after MOM for Bath towards end of the season

When he is not there you notice
