An obituary of Bill McLaren

This week's House Points was a sort of tribute to Bill McLaren. For a more conventional one, see the his Daily Telegraph obituary:

“No one voice is more closely associated with a single sport,” declared the Telegraph’s rugby correspondent, Brendan Gallagher, “and ironically that is now a cross rugby must bear. We have heard the 'best’ already.

Nothing can or will compare with McLaren in his pomp. He didn’t just reflect rugby’s camaraderie and ethos, he helped inspire it. Right sport, right man, right time.”
