He was one of the best cover tacklers in the world at the time, can Finn Russell/George Ford and even the great Dan Carter tackle like those 2?

You can't just pick on one element of a game, you must look at it all.

Sorry you will never convince me.
Be careful when you pick up the stick.........IT MAY BE THE WRONG END!!!!!!!!!!

As good as Stephen Jones was and a lot of the time he was severely underrated by others he is not in the same class as Phil Bennett.
Phil was one of a kind would have been great in any era could find space in a phone box. Small compared to today's giants but huge in heart ability and temperament one of rugbys great men.
We have been lucky at the Scarlets to have some legends of the game but Phil is at the top of the list in my view.
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

Totally agree. Benny stood up to some huge tough Saffers and came out on top & that was when half backs were not as protected by the laws as they are, rightfully, today. A true Great of the game along with Gareth, Barry & JPR. Boy were we spoilt in those days.

Why don't they take 60? 15 from each country. We'd be still moaning even then 😂
