Hate seeing the footage of Joost in his latter years, prefer to remember him doing what we all know him for.

A man who played the game about 20 years ahead of his time. How many players from the 95 RWC could walk onto an international field now and not look out of place? RIP :salut:

I could name a few from even earlier but of course the proviso would be the were blessed by modern nutrition & training. That said, Willie John would be regarded as too small for a forward these days, try the wing young lad. I met Syd Millar on a flight from Paris to Belfast 10 years ago and he told me that at his heaviest he was 15 st 7 pounds and the average weight in the pack would have been around that weight.

Did you know that CMH Gibson was the first ever replacement in international rugby, 1967-68 season I believe. now he would make clowns of most modern day centres with the above proviso. A few of his Welsh contemporaries come to mind too.
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

FIRFU - FU'CK YOU ONE AND ALL, CAVING IN TO SPONSORS, SACKING THE INNOCENT FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, SHAMEFUL BASTA'RDS. YOU'VE LOST MY SUPPORT & I HOPE MORE ULSTERMEN & WOMEN
