It's arguably the sports most iconic match in it's history, and probably it's worst match. Terrible stuff.

Were the scrums back then usually such a mess? Quite a few times the ball never even went in but play carried on. The BBC should do this more regularly putting old finals on the red button. Obviously this one is known more for the conditions and the drama of the missed kick at the end rather than quality of the contest but there have been many great finals that could be reshown.

It is a terrible game, but the conditions are yrully awful and have not been exaggerated over the years.

Anybody who wants to bring back proper scrums wants shooting.
And the play the balls only about half if them put it on the floor and play it with the foot the rest just get bounced between the legs.

Everything was far messier back then.

Typical Wakey trying to cheat, great call from the ref to give the try for obstruction.

Poor Don. I could have cried for him, but the game should have been abandoned long before then.
