He played in the 1970s, but, if he played now, he would still be the best. He was outstanding at running, passing, kicking and reading the game. He sits astride the whole of rugby as the ultimate athlete on the pitch".

Edwards was prominent in the Welsh national team that was to the fore in European rugby in the '60s and '70s. He is one of a…Read more on Wikipedia
