Wales and Lions great Phil Bennett, RIP

I’m very sad to read on the the BBC site this evening of the death of Phil Bennett, of Wales and the British Lions.

I have posted here several times before on ‘that’ try. Here he is talking about it:

To you Phil Bennett, I raise a glass. RIP and thank you.

Very sad indeed. Phil was one stand out from a very classy generation of Welsh rugby players. As has been said, 73 is way too soon.
