I'll probably watch it tonight. Fully expecting a nice tribute from Stephen Jones, tempered with some sort of notion BOD wasn't quite world class, or something. This is the guy who didn't pick BOD in his Lions 2009 Test Team.

Well, The Fool (c'mon he's earned the Capitalisation!) for years consistently picked any Welsh 13 then currently as being better than BOD; Henson, Shankalin, Roberts- finally Davies. Objectively it was only from Christmas last year that the latter surpassed him. Jones then tried to promote Ricky Flutey (ha!), Hipkiss, Tuilagi and any one of the many good but limited 'one trick ponies' that flashed across the AP for a decade. Conrad Smith probably surpassed BOD in 2012- '13. No shame there.

I fully expect Jones to damn with his pompous faint praise. Lots of 'splendids' and 'estimable'. I bought the ST yesterday; I won't be watching that DVD.

Yes, possibly the most Anglocentric Welshman I've ever encountered. Really, really nasty imperial anti-Irish streak in him too. A bit of a bigot. For a Sunday Times journalist, it's not really acceptable.

????? What would make you expect anything different from a Sunday times journalist?

Plus some welsh people really are that only in name. Everything else is English. Which is fair enough. I don't go around telling people what they feel as a rule.

Pretty bland and and insipid stuff. I go along with the theory that it was thrown together in a week and I'll go a step further and say it was probably done by a bunch of TY's

Only good thing about it was that it was mercifully short.

That's unfair: Stephen Jones knows a lot, lot more about rugby than Brenda Power.





Mind you less of what she knows is completely wrong.

Its often been speculated on that SJones irrational hatred of all things Irish could be down to him having his heart broken by a colleen.
Brenda Power is a colleen.
Just sayin.

Stephen Jones has a scottish double Ian Robertson. Both of them are to be avoided like one would avoid Ebola.
