    I think it was taken in January 1997.

    Neath RFC 125th Anniversary Dinner. David Duckham was the main speaker, supported by a guy named Peter Brown (not the Scottish international - a Crown Prosecution Solicitor)

    I guess the Coventry supporters must feel the same way now as Neath when they had Spencer and Duckham in the late 60s early 70s

    Well well. Hardly a bombshell but who will replace him? The track record in this regard doesn't fill me with optimism.

    It’s well known around Mumbles that Robbie Fleck was offered the job last time around. Clarke got it because Fleck didn’t accept.

    With c18 months left on his contract, this decision will cost the Os a small fortune, especially if they have to pay top dollar for a ‘name’

    I can't unfortunately, I'm too busy dribbling and shouting at passers by, so they won't let me drive.

    The change from individual club rugby to 4 regional club rugby has not worked out for any of the regions really,,International rugby has been good but i think we could have been even better when we had individual clubs imo.....Clark was a highly respected coach but for one reason or another it has never worked out for him at the Ospreys. I miss going to see great clubs games against teams like Neath,Bridgend, Pontypool and the rest as they were great days out. The only games i see now is Penclawdd and occasionally the all whites and the derby matches Ospreys V Scarletts......I wish we could go back to the old system but sadly i cant see that ever happening...

    Refereed Penclawdd a few times in the past, when money was not the most important thing. My travelling expenses from Pontarddulais at that time was 1 pound. ... those were the days.

    Good to hear from you again.
