Rugby Drill Demonstration


In the second minute of the game Brian Williams gets the ball from Ian Kirkpatrick and kicks it deep inside the Barbarian 22. Phil Bennett picks up the ball around his own 10 yard line, makes three successive steps to elude Alister Scown, J. Hurst and Ian Kirkpatrick. Bennett passes it on to JPR Williams. JPR gets tackled high, but still manages to pass to John Pullin. Confused English hooker John Pullin gives the ball to John Dawes who sells a dummy, covers ground and passes inside to the uncapped Welshman Tom David. Tom David is now inside the All Black half and being chased by a bunch of All Blacks. He makes a one handed throw inside to Derrik Quinnell (father of current Welsh international Scott Quinnell). Quinnell throws another one handed pass inside (I am not sure who it's intended for). Gareth Edwards from nowhere runs in the middle to pick the pass. Edwards runs the last 30 or so yards beating a bunch of All Blacks and dives in to the left hand corner of the river Tafft end to score what is now known as "The Try".
