    We were in no way a one man team

    We were a one man scoring team but none the less

    How did you go in the matches after the WC when Johnny was injured?

    Well, after the WC, a load of our vets and leaders retired, including Johnson. Then Wilko got injured and we played averagely to say the best

    We're starting to recover, but our players need to build up their experience

    I have been saying the same thing since the 80s. If I was in charge of a college program I would offer those young rugby types full scholorships and destroy the competition by year 3. Probably get a national championship with any type of truly specialist recruiting at all.

    except trying to get them to learn an entire playbook and workout fully is an entirely different story.

    Every play I had to remind the Fullback which hole to run through.

    Hawaii, USC ASU BYU UU UO all do a fantastic job of recruiting the Islands I'm pretty sure that anyone who wants to come to the US has a great chance. Most of the Rugby guys like my brother-in-law have no desire to play football, he likes watching it but he prefers to play the faster paced Rugby, Can't say I blame him its like an organized game of tackle the man with the football.

    Some day I'm going to get in shape and join my Brother-in-law for a game of rugby. I'm going to kill in the scrum because I have really strong legs and a low center of gravity. Or I'll stay fat and just watch it on TV.
