Farewell to one of the greatest finishers of all time, JJ Williams, from the days when sideburns ruled.

He was fast enough to compete in the 4x100m at the 1970 commonwealth games.

Always more comfortable for us England fans to see him in a British Lions jersey.

A little - JJ's 100m time was around 10.6s, a time matched by Lomu. Robinson could pull a 10.7. It's reckoned Habana can pull a 10.4 smile

Lomu really was quite something, wasn't he ? How could someone built like the proverbial brick privvy be so fast and agile ?

His almost single handed destruction of England, running 4 tries past us at Newlands in the RWC semi-final in South Africa in 1995 remains seared on my memory.

Three Qs at the international level now do seem to be enormous; this is perhaps Jonah Lomu's real legacy. Shane Williams was something of an exception, a true old-school winger, you don't see many like him these days.

Here’s some old school winger action for you Richard. This is my cousin’s boy Marcus Ramage at No 11 when he was playing for Hong Kong Scottish. He has been capped by Hong Kong, but currently plays for Cardiff University.
