Loss of England legend, John Pullin

England and British & Irish Lions rugby lost John Pullin yesterday, one of the greatest hookers to play the game. He will be remembered for captaining England and being a 1971 victorious Lion in New Zealand, and also leading England out at Lansdowne Road in 1972 when every other team refused to travel due to secutiry concerns. “We may not be very good,” he began his post-match dinner speech, “but at least we turn up.”

“It was just a score to be honest. Four points. Three-nil with a penalty would have suited me”
