Thanks for the 1973 Cup Final link, I was there....Cardiff were favourites as I recall.

Was a great night in the club that night!

after a lovely jon griffiths pass ,against cardiff who had a dubious cordle try allowed.

In the words of dai parry jones commentating "a try from cordle, a very unusual one, but its worth 4 points " LOL

For those who have Facebook, here is the 1985 Final v Cardiff.

And here is the 73 Final v Cardiff (again).

The 72/73 season was immense. Beat the ABs and then win the Cup after losing it the season previous. That run of 4 cup wins must have been in no small part due to the confidence gained in the NZ victory.

Parry-Jones was gutted when Gareth Davies missed with a drop goal attempt at the death

I'll never forget that Cordle try..In those days they only used to show the second half live.  I agree  about Gary Pearce  he was quite under rated  I agree.

Dad worked for Royal Mail I take it.

Maybe, as there are so many,  we should have the teams in different eras?

Correct. Bronglais Hospital is within a stone's throw from where I am sitting. Stevo is another 'Bronglais boy'.
