Given how many hookers scored tries this Autumn my suggested rule change to make rugby better is that the try scorer must take the conversion

On goal kicking bookers , do the more “mature “ members of the forum remember Norman Gale a big burly hooker  ( former captain and international of course) doing some goal kicking for the Scarlets in the ‘60’s? Toe kicks of course in the Stradey mud 😂 He went on to run the White Horse pub in retirement.

He also kicked a penalty for Wales v the All Blacks in 1967 - think he was the last hooker to score a penalty in an International 
Match.

Did he? Thanks for that information. He just looked back then the total antithesis to a willowy Barry John or dinking Phil Bennett- not a bit elegant but he could kick!

Barry John dropped a goal but missed 2-3 sitters . Norman who was captain on the day got mildly irritated took the ball off him for the next one and just banged it over.

Thanks for that-lineout issues echoed our more recent woes,but there was more of a genuine rivalry then-"Decidedly this was a day for New Zealand Rugby folk to cherish and remember. The hundreds, even thousands, of New Zealanders who were present will assuredly go on telling the story of this proud moment of the squaring of the rubber with Wales for many and many a long day to come."
Times have changed!

Incredible pub knowledge if true.

Ken should really put a few words in to Pivac
