Arise Sir Bill Beaumont

Huge congratulations to Bill Beaumont, awarded a knighthood in the New Year's honours list for services to rugby.

Antiquated as the UK honours system might be, the knighting of Beaumont does give me a certain satisfaction as it was his England team's 1980 Grand Slam that first fuelled my obsession with this wonderful game of ours.

Amongst Beaumont's many achievements in rugby, being the inspiration behind Total Flanker must rank right up there 😉.

Arise Sir Bill!
