Talking point: The greatest try in rugby history?
It has been described as the greatest try in rugby history.
Forty years ago, the Barbarians defeated the All Blacks 23-11 at Cardiff Arms Park with a stunning try by Gareth Edwards.
Seven players were involved, Phil Bennett, JPR Williams, John Pullin, John Dawes, Tom David, Derek Quinnell and Edwards.
The famous commentary, by Cliff Morgan on January 28, 1973, went: "Kirkpatrick to Williams. This is great stuff. Phil Bennett covering, chased by Alistair Scown. Brilliant! Oh, that's brilliant! John Williams, Brian Williams, Pullin, John Dawes. Great dummy! David, Tom David, the half-way line. Brilliant by Quinnell. This is Gareth Edwards. A dramatic start. What a score! Oh that fellow Edwards!"
