Lovely to see my old mate from County rugby at Under 17 and Under 19’s the other day. Jon ( Harding ) played for Caerleon school and I was at Pontypool College ( after West Mon Grammar went comprehensive and lost its 6th form ).
We talked about all sorts of stuff ( well it’s been 31 years since I last saw him ) and I hope I’ll see him again soon.
I was quite pleased to hear something he said about the matches between our 2 school sides – he said that when they played us they had one main strategy, that bring to somehow stop me from getting the ball. It made me smile to think that my little bit of fame as a teenage force on the pitch had spread as far as Caerleon, all of 8 miles away ..
Thanks for telling me!
