I'm 38 so the game in 72 obviously doesn't hold any memories for me but would be interested to know what the players of that day are up to right now(with a few obvious exceptions....)

Anyone with updated info??

Don't know about Roy Thomas and Barrie Llewellyn.
Delme is retired according to a recent documentary.
DQ still attends matches
Hefin Jenkins is on the Board.
Gareth Jenkins is head of recruitment at the Scarlets.
Don't know about Tom David.
JJ runs his own painting and decorating company near Bridgend.
Ray has sadly left us.
Phil Bennet does radio commentary and media work.
Roy Bergiers is retired and was on the radio last week.
Don't know about Roger Davies, Andy Hill, and Chico Hopkins.

My father gave me a photo cutting from a newspaper of the players who were attending a rugby function recently with the team of 72 and other Scarlet players, great seeing the great faces again together. Have to say though Jonny Griff looks well and has hardly aged at all, what a fantastic player he was.

Roy Bergiers worked as a Technology teacher in Carmarthen for many years - forget if it was QE Cambria or QE Maridunum.

I'm not sure about Barrie Llewellyn - there is a garage in N Pembrokeshire (near Eglwyswrw, I think - with that name, and I have often wondered if it is the same Llewellyn.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Barrie owned two sports shops at one time - in Llanelli and Tenby.   The Llanelli one closed years ago. I'm not sure whether the Tenby shop is still going.
Pity he retired so young.   A great forward.  Big, tough, strong, mobile and great runner and handler.  More than capable as a flanker when required.to fill in.
It's a thinking man's game

Different game then, but I well remember Barrie playing No 6 on several occasions. His brother Bryan (?) also played 2nd row for the Scarlets. IIRC Barrie started his senior career at Newport.
