Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. I won 29 tests for my country, mainly in the 70s, played 20 times for the Barbarians, and went on two Lions Tours. I was the first ever substitute used in international rugby !

Answer: Phil Bennett

Phil Bennett was born in Felinfoel in 1948. He played all his club rugby for his beloved Llanelli, and inherited the great Barry John's mantle as Fly Half for Wales and the British Lions. Skippering Wales against England in 1977, his pre-game pep talk produced a memorable quote: "Look what these b*stards have done to Wales.

They've taken our coal, our water, our steel. They buy our homes and live in them for a fortnight every year. What have they given us? Absolutely nothing. We've been exploited, raped, controlled and punished by the English - and that's who you are playing this afternoon."
2. 312 points in 28 appearances for my country, I spent the last years of my club career playing in Italy.

Answer: Naas Botha

Hendrik Egnatius Botha, commonly known as Naas, had a phenomenal kicking record at international level - 50 penalties, 50 conversions and 18 drop goals in just 28 games. In 1983 on the invitation of the American football team the Dallas Cowboys he tried out as a placekicker.

This move was not successful, however, and he returned to South Africa to continue his rugby career. A couple of years later, he moved to Rovigo in Italy to play professionally, where he saw out the remainder of his career.
3. I retired at the age of 25, after earning 25 caps for my country, in which I scored 6 tries, 3 conversions, 8 penalties and 8 drop goals.

Answer: Mark Ella

Mark Ella never really explained why he retired before arguably reaching his peak as a rugby player. His twin brother Glen and younger brother Gary also played for Australia in the 1980s. Mark scored a try against each of the Home Nations on the Australians' 1984 Tour of the UK - repeating a feat he'd accomplished as a schoolboy on the 1977-78 Australian Schools Tour.
4. I contributed 126 points to my country's World Cup winning campaign, but scored only 1 try in my 46 tests.

Answer: Grant Fox

In 78 matches for the All Blacks Grant Fox scored 1067 points and in his 46 tests, 645 points, his only try coming against Scotland in 1990. In 303 first class matches, he scored a record 4112 points, of which 2746 came in 189 games for Auckland. A key member of the great Auckland sides of 1985-93, Fox scored 932 points in Ranfurly Shield rugby, nearly three times more than anyone else.
5. Born in Cefneithin, I started my career with Llanelli. I only played a total of 25 times for Wales.

Answer: Barry John

Following his key role in the British Lions' first ever Test series victory in New Zealand in 1971, Barry John earned the sobriquet "The King". A year later, he had retired from the game, his last match coming against France in March 1972. John cited media attention as the key factor.

The story goes that he finally had enough of the attention his ability was drawing when a young girl curtsied to him outside the opening of a local bank, obviously in reference to his nickname. Once Barry John had retired from rugby, he disappeared almost totally from the public eye.
6. I played in 20 of the 29 games on my only Lions Tour, and represented my country for 7 consecutive seasons. At one time, I was my country's most capped player, with 46 caps to my name.

Answer: Jack Kyle

Jack Kyle scored 7 tries and 1 drop goal in his 46 appearances for Ireland. He was educated at Belfast Royal Academy and qualified as a medical doctor from Queen's University, Belfast. Following his retirement from club rugby in 1963, he emigrated to Chingola, Zambia (formerly known as Northern Rhodesia) where he worked as a surgeon/medical practitioner until 2000. Following his solo try against France at Ravenhill, Belfast in 1953, a newspaper scribe was moved to parody "The Scarlet Pimpernel" with the lines:
They seek him here, they seek him there
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
That paragon of pace and guile,
That demned elusive Jackie Kyle.
7. I played in three World Cups, winning one of them - and was the record points scorer for my country on my international retirement. I finished my club career in the UK.

Answer: Michael Lynagh

Michael Lynagh skippered Australia to their 1991 World Cup triumph, and retired from international rugby after their loss to England in the 1995 Quarter Final. He scored a record 911 points for Australia. He spent the last years of his career playing club rugby with Saracens in England.
8. I played my club rugby in Ireland and Wales, representing my country 29 times -scoring 3 tries. My final games were played in South Africa.

Answer: Cliff Morgan

Cliff Morgan played all his club rugby for Cardiff, apart from one season in Ireland with Bective Rangers. He finished his career on the Barbarians tour of South Africa in 1958 - the country where he had been the "star turn" on the British Lions Tour 3 years previously.

After retiring from rugby, Cliff Morgan achieved considerable success as a Broadcaster and Senior Executive within the BBC.
9. I skippered my country on a pre-WWII "Grand Slam" Tour, and played all 17 of my Test matches consecutively, scoring 46 points in the process.

Answer: Bennie Osler

Bennie Osler was a talented fly-half in an unbroken run of 17 test matches for South Africa between 1924 and 1933. Famed for his immaculate touch kicking, he also won many matches for Western Province and the Springboks with brilliant drop-kicks. In 1931-32 he captained the Springboks on their 26-match tour of the British Isles which included a grand slam of test victories over the four home nations.
10. I could have become a professional soccer player, but chose rugby instead. After winning 58 caps for my country, I retired and became a politician.

Answer: Hugo Porta

Hugo Porta is undoubtedly the most famous rugby player produced by Argentina. He turned down a contract with the famous Boca Juniors soccer club to pursue his rugby career, and at one time held the world record for kicking 8 goals (7 penalties and a conversion) in one game.

After retiring from rugby, he was appointed as the Argentinian Ambassador to South Africa, before becoming his country's Minister of Sport in 1994.
