    I put it in the Celebrity RIP thread but you're probably right, he deserves his own thread.

      RIP Fred. One of the old school of rugby commentators.

        Loved the way he used say 'Duggan getting up gingerly there after that ruck' when he'd been tattooed by the studs of an old school French pack. He and the great Bill were how I first heard rugby called out. Fred's old fella Mitchel Cogley was a sports columnist when old, and was not short of a pungent opinion.

          Saturday afternoons in front of the fire with Dad in the 80s/90s listening to Fred and Bill McLaren and Ireland getting hockeyed... fond memories

              I'll forever associate his voice with us losing to everybody, everywhere, except Wales in Cardiff.

                Another voice from my childhood that creates that warm fond memory feeling. RIP.
