Played a part in the great Gareth Edwards try for the Barbarians against the All Blacks, apparently was very much appreciated by some of the bigger names in the great Welsh team of the early seventies.

It is a tradition that players appearing for the Barbarians always wear their club socks - hence the differences among the players in the Lions tour opener. The other long-held tradition in the Barbarians is that at least one of their starting XV should be an uncapped player.

Im not sure but I think that Tommy David was uncapped and played in THE match in the video

I was there, between the posts and corner flag where Edwards scored that try. Great memories. Doesn't get mentioned often but David Duckham was at his best that day.

I can't remember whether John Bevan might have been uncapped at that time.
