Phil Bennett quote

Following on from my, "Hmm, Welsh wonders in the Lions" it's approporiate that I post this actual team (off the work PC) talk Phil Bennett gave to Wales before England in Cardiff.

Look what those bastards have done to Wales" he roared. "They've taken our coal, our water, our steel. They buy our houses and they live in them for a fortnight every 12 months.

What have they given us? Absolutely nothing. We've been exploited, raped, controlled and punished by the English - and that's who you are playing this afternoon.


Then Wales ran out and gave another bewitching demonstration of the fine art of rugby.
