Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

    The Game, That Game;

    The Barbarians v The All Blacks 1973

    Probably the best game of rugby ever recorded, is on BBC Interactive on Saturday Morning as a warm up for BaBas v Kiwis '09.

    A terrific game which includes what would be my vote for one of the best trys of all time as well.

    According to John Inverdale it is being shown 'Live', which could be interesting!!

    If you don't have a copy already set your recorders!

    Thanks Ramps- I've just come!!!!! :D

    (surprisingly I only noticed 2 penalty worthy tackles from the ABs there!)
  4. Thankfully for everyone else but JPR the game went on after the first. The second one becomes yellow cardable in the modern game after the over pernickity ref spends 10 minutes repeatedly warning the captains before actually acting. :D

    Which is precisely why we will never see a game of its like again!

    I had heard these things mentioned during the State Sponsered Six Nations
  8. Barry John never lived that match down, because he packed it in the year before LOL Still crys in his beer about not being able to say "I was there"
  9. I have it on VHS, but no player. One of the greatest matches of all time.

    When the Welsh had the best team they ever had.
  10. Wasnt that the season that Llanelli beat the All blacks too

    That was when the amateur greats had time to run out for the Baa-baa's, there was some serious getting to know each other in the mauls/rucks and the only hairless fellow was the Kiwi scrum half.

    It was also a time I thought Wales were an amazing team so sometimes it's a good thing time moves on.
