    Top 10? Name an all time Welsh XV and he doesn't even make the bench Dai.

    Personally, Gerald Davies & Ieuan Evans, to name but 2 Right Wings, would be ahead of him.

    On the left wing, Ken Jones & JJ Wiiiams would probably rank ahead of him.

    Gareth Edwards
    Gerald
    JPR
    Merv
    Pricey
    Barry John
    Alun Wyn
    Roy John
    Cliff Morgan
    Phil Bennett

    Etc

    Shane Williams definetly ahead of North
    I'd also take Dafydd James too - hugely under rated player.

    Then you have the likes of Jonathan Davies, Scott Gibbs, Alan Bateman, Henson, Shanklin, Byrne, Neil Jenkins, Rob Howley, Scott Quinnell etc

    To be honest Valley, there were some great players in the 50s - Bryn Meredith (3 Lions tours, 8 Tests), Courtney Meredith (played with Bryn in 1955 series in SA - series drawn 2-2), Rhys Stephens, Rhys Williams....

    In the 70s you could include also the ‘Shadow’ - the great Dai Morris, not forgetting Bobby Windsor.

    George is a great player - but not in the Top 25, let alone Top 10

    Totally agree Taff difficult to see George in a top 30. Good to see a few Neath names in your post <cheers>

    Don't forget lads Rugby is much tougher today and some of the players mentioned would never get a cap into today's rugby .....GN have proved himself in the modern game and would outclass most players mentioned in yesteryear with speed and fitness....

    On the other hand Dai, just imagine how much better those players would be with today’s conditioning and fitness regimes - not forgetting that they would be full time Professionals.

    Who says they would make the grade, We would never know but it was a different era where it was part time as most of the players were i full time employment.
    Today's players are much fitter and better trained......

    Fully agree. An all time great of the game

    At this rate North stuggles to get into the top 40.
