    40th anniversary

    of John Pullin leading his England side out at LR to a standing ovation, in defiance of death threats from the PIRA.
    Pedantry - the last bastion of the obtuse.

    Great line from Pullin.

    Had the privilege of being there. Special.

        I wasn't even born but my Dad, and his old boy (a Yorkshireman) were at the game. Grandfather says it's one of his most treasured sporting moments.

            Like at the first England game in Croke Park, we'll be nice and polite to them until 3:00 and after about 5:00 and roaring abuse like lunatics at them for the two hours in between.

              Was there myself. A great memory. Worth mentioning also that when our Celtic brothers refused to travel,the French came to play an international seeing that we had been deprived.Not always a great admirer of the French but they stuck by us then.
