InductedEngland v Wales (February 4, 2006)

The following article has been adapted from the original by Dai Llewellyn, which focused on two players. It has been changed to highlight only the selected inductee’s information.

JPR Williams took England apart with two tries in 1976, when Wales went on to complete their second Grand Slam of the 1970s.
Williams had by then established himself as a legend. He was known by his initials, but also for the way he played the game – fearlessly, thrillingly and skillfully, whether it was for Wales, the Lions, London Welsh or Bridgend.

He was famed for his courage, his fearless counter-attacking, his magnificent defence and wonderful footballing skills.
He liked Twickenham. He had scored tries there against England before and by the time of that double there was no doubt that he knew precisely where the ground was.
