Had a dream season last year.
He led the Scarlets despite not being captain in name. His kicking game may be up for debate but he's worked so hard since being knee high to a grasshopper.
He comes from a very hardworking family in the Laugharne/ St. Clears area. His father worked in Birmingham as an accountant and worked his backside off whilst his mum ran pubs.
His dad was the youngest ever debutant for Carmarthen Quins RFC 1st XV aged 16 position (you guessed it )centre.

Mark Taylor was some player, and let's not forget Roy Bergiers, John Dawes, Steve Fenwick and Claude Davey.
Mark Ring if only he'd escaped serious injury and kept fit might have potentially been an all time great.
I wish he'd become a top flight coach for so much longer.

Bergiers was underated .

Seem to recall him being side lined on a Lions tour


What stands out for me is JD having what all great players have ...time. He makes the right decisions instinctively ,under pressure, and that can't be coached easily

Roy Bergiers taught me Business Studies and rugby for one year. A very strong man with huge hands but broke his leg 6 times!! 3 times as a teacher, has trouble walking now and is more metallic than bone

Bateman. Fact.

Ever since my son was... never conceived, because I've never had consensual sex without money involved... I've always kind of looked at you as... a thing, that I could live next to... in accordance with state laws.

No secret Fathy .
Down there and up here


Was member at New Brighton for twenty years

I've coached kids at our local village club when our lad played there .


I liked rugby very much ,was very quick over ten yards and could kick decent enough


I wasn't good at doing much tackling and got banged regularly as I was never more than 12 stone then . As lads got bigger and I got narkier, I quit and stuck to playing Squash


Played cricket too.

I was the only bloke who wore a Swansea shirt in his lessons, he loved that. Good banter and I used to really enjoy the toughening up process he put us through which is sadly lacking now!

Played open side once but got tw@tted badly.

From then on I played 10 12 or 15 .

Not being big was a disadvantage especially I was fond of a scrap. I tended to start things off and let others finish it.

Got sent off once though. Proudest day of my life

Max, it won't!!! It is a great sport but brutal. Despite all the knocks I took as a ball carrier it was only from being poorly supported in a line out by one of my props that my knee gave out and finished me.
I would never put anyone off playing, but I would say make sure you are fit and into weights and at least can bench and squat you're own body weight.
You have to be strong to take the hits as well as give them.

I was never out of the gym Dicky, train twice a week with the club, tues and a thurs weight train mon, weds and fri, play on a Saturday when picked then a pissup, then run a 6/7 miler on Sunday evenings, trouble was when doing weights I picked up a few injuries that would rule me out of playing.
I was lifting some heavy stuff though squatting, benching all the main body parts mostly all compound moves until I learnt off others with a better knowledge of what exercises to do, loved the weights still, do but in the fattening up process these days, got to snap out of it I'm afraid to jump on the scales at the moment

Got up to 150 kg in the bench, 190kg in the squat for a one rep max and it started spiralling out of control. The gym made me too aggressive.
I've lost nearly 2 stone since stopping heavy weights and in all honesty I'm happier for it.

Ego's, muscle and gyms ......... Don't miss any of those 3

Me to, I do circuits using Dumbbells when I'm in the zone which I haven't been since August and use exercise bikre, I just use heavier Dumbbells once I get used to the weight, 8 straight exercises 30 second rest then bang out the sets rarely more than 5 though, usually have a bit longer rest 1,1/2 to 2 mins after 3rd and 4th sets. 20 minute warm up on bike then go for it then at least 20mins back on bike after circuits.

Need to get back at though and soon, this weather doesn't help though, to bloody cold.
