Yeah especially when there's a rugby match on in town, they're queuing up to buy him a pint.
Brilliant, rightfully so as well, we might not have seen Phil Bennet but what if he played another 3/4 years, he doesn’t get enough credit imo as he should be considered as the greatest player ever certainly at 10 from outside the circle of rugby

Lions, barbarians and scarlets he coached to victory over the all blacks. I don't know why he didn't coach Wales, missed a trick there.

Very eccentric wasn't he as well
I think the rugby establishment at that time viewed him as too much of a maverick, not one of the old boys club, he was often critical of the hierarchy, maybe that's why they never offered him the job.
