depends what era you were brought up in ... fortunately for me I was a kid watching the late 60s and then the 70s teams so happy that Delme and Andy Hill were mentioned but we could add Selwyn Williams and  2 hookers ...Roy shanto Thomas  and Norman Gale 
I was there ...one Tuesday when the All Blacks came (and lost)

Whatever happened to Ian 'Spaceman' Jones?
For a couple of years he was like Serge Blanco 2.0. Amazing attacking fullback with incredible flair.

Sadly he was hit by injuries and appeared to lose interest . He went to Cardiff and then neath. He went off the playing radar - a tremendous shame as he was - we all know so immensely talented. Wing or full back he was outstanding. To us older fans - when we look at uncapped three quarters , Andy hill and Ian Jones stand out by a mile

I've seen him in the Parc in a game Mike. If my memory serves me right he left his boots behind for one of the cup finals and someone had to drive up with his boots to Cardiff. Ian was a piano player too.

lol 😂. It wouldn’t surprise me - he was one hell of a player bearing in mind that when he scored that wonder try in the 91 cup final , he was only 19/20 yrs of age. In the treble season , his turn of pace was something else - probably the quickest off the mark since Gareth Edwards

Spaceman is a good friend of my buddy. Last I heard he was a teacher in the Abergavenny area, where he is from.

I played agsinst him once whilst he played for Llandeilo 2nds. Thats going back a good few years. Still was quick even though he put a few pounds on.

I know he went to comprehensive school in Abergavenny, because he is my mate's school friend. I was watching him message back and fore on facebook with my pal about 7-8 years ago. I'll ask him for the latest.

Ah yes. Didnt he do a segment on Scrum V playing a grand piano outdoors wearing tails?

Yes, I remember that piece too, a classical piece if a remember.
