Ieuan is our greatest ever winger imo the only reason I didnt pick him is because I figured this was a team of folk hero mavericks, the carmarthen cowboy always seemed very straight laced to me, compared to the larger than life personas of grav, jim scarlet , perego and co lol

Whitchurch and in particular Whitchurch high
Have produced
 Gareth Bale, Sam Warburton and Geraint Thomas probably rivals Bancyfelin for diversity.

Everyone's got their definition of folk hero, but Phil May and Laurence Delaney would be in my XV anyway - both had over 500 appearances for Llanelli in 3 different decades. I'd swear Phil May played until he was 60.
