On the other hand... it was the best ever decade for rugby - Wales's 5 triple crowns and 3 grand slams; Lions beating New Zeland and SA; and those truly epic Boxing Day matches between Llanelli and London Welsh, with the Scarlets including Benny, Delme, Derek Quinnell, Andy Hill, and - of course - Grav; the Welsh included Gerald Davies, John Dawes, JPR, Geoff Evans, Mervyn Davies, John Taylor and so on. Great days!
