Lions Tour 1974: The 99 Call

Discussion in 'Sports, Adventure Training and Events' started by Lepus, May 29, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone got any footage of this? Tried googling it but no luck.

  2. I've got it on quicktime, I think from the link below which now seems to be all stills. Including some greats ones of the 9/11 firemen 2 of whom are rugby players.

    Rugby Images

    PM me if you want that and some others including Rob Howley's try in 2003 for Wasps, Matt Dawson's try in 97 for the Lions, THE try in 73 and Ben Cohen failing miserably to break up a fight between 2 props.
  3. Not wishing to name drop but I had dinner with a number of the members of that famous, wonderful, oustanding team.

    They certainly confirmed that the 99 was used on a number of occasions and it had the perfect effect.
