Wow, just wow.

Reminded me a bit of John Ferguson.
"Look at that shimmy, that's what does him"

"and that's the best fullback in the world he's just run past"

Not so much JF but perhaps Jason Robinson for me.

I think it was winger WG...... he was referring to dane ohara who was good but nowhere near the best in the world...... ray french was prone to get excited

It was winger :) The old memory was playing tricks there!

and yes I agree with your assessement. He wasn't the best in the world.

ps I think it was Alex Murphy who said it not Ray French.

What was it Murphy said about Ferguson in the second half the 1985 cup final (when Fergie had a muscle or hamstring problem in the first half)?

Something along the lines of "If he's got a bad leg, I'll have two of em."

Another classic was when Joe Lydon dropped a goal from 60 metres at Maine Road: "Did he give that some pago?"

:D
