Cliff Morgan - RIP

Sad to hear of the death of Cliff Morgan, aged 83, after a long illness.

Not only was Morgan a fine fly-half for Cardiff, Wales and the Lions, he also went on to become one of the UK’s most respected broadcasters and is perhaps best known for being the TV commentator for the most famous try in history – Gareth Edwards’ opening try for the BaaBaas against the All Blacks in 1973:
"PHIL BENNETT COVERING, CHASED BY ALISTAIR SCOWN...BRILLIANT, OH THAT'S BRILLIANT...JOHN 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!!!"
