    RIP Phil Bennett.
    Think it was Barbarians v All Blacks

  • What a player. RIP
  • Cliff Morgan's commentary was brilliant. The game was possibly the greatest game of all time. The Barbarians was more or less the British Lions team that had won in New Zealand previously. Phil Bennett is a rugby union immortal and will always be remembered for his part in that try. RIP.
  • One of the all time greats. RIP.
