Bill McLaren - celebrate dont mourn!

Sadly the Voice of Rugby has been stilled for good. I always knew what I'd do when Eddie Butler died, establish an alibi, hide the weapon...but with Big Bill gone, well I just feel numb.

So to keep the spirit of the great Bill McLaren alive and celebrate his life, why not come up with a McLarenism of your own, to remember his gift for rugby and for words?

Here's an example:

"Oh dear and he's like an Irish serial killer with a choice of two lay-bys today!"

Probably about a fly-half who couldn't decide whether to kick or run...e.g. Phil "World Class" Godman?

Or, of an Italian back row "The referee's having a word and it's probably "Which part of off, in off-side, are you having trouble with cnutchops ?"

RIP Bill.

Yes that's got potential...

"Dear me, that scrum's about as steady as the town hall in Port au Prince"

"Well, he's digging away in that ruck like a hungry USAR dog!"*

"He practically cut him in half with that tackle, it was like falling Haitian masonry!"

*Note, USAR here refers not to the Argy RU but to Urban Search and Rescue!

That second phase was like a tsunami on an earthquake - they'll be still shaking in their boots in Haiti
It's as dusty in here as a Haitin hotel...
Yes...more, more!

"He's as slippery as Lord Mandelson at a jelly wrestling competition in Fire Island"
"Ooh, he saw the gap and came inside before unloading the ball into his eager hands"

Eye's down for Bill's innuendo bingo..........Rugby commentary hasn't been and never will be the same without him.
