"God" is my fave:) I also liked Chris "One Man Riot" Wyatt. Fans of a certain vintage may recall the nickname given to Bernard Thomas, quite a few times I heard people say "oh blydi hell" when his name was announced instead of Benny;)

Perego was known as oddball i always thought. Not a scarlet, but i laughed when Warburton was being interviewed once and he came out with a long list of nicknames the boys had for him, the one that made me chuckle was 'Hose nose' poor dab! Colin Stephens, wasnt he the 'dwaf'? One of the boys in foel was known as 'Dai Bell' and when i asked why i was told because there were too many Neils in the club! 
Go ahead..........Take those banana's
