Title: ... p74 - Ray Price playing in Aus -v- Gwent match 1975 player Terry Maggs

In the Australia vs Gwent match on the 1975 tour of the UK the fantastic Ray Price (what a hard man) went into the Gwent dressing room after the game and singled out a fellow back row forward Terry Maggs and gave him his Australian Jersey (they did'nt exchange jersey's for the provincial games) but this gesture by the man went down in local folklore history because Terry only played for a junior club and took a hammering that day but stuck it out to the very end.

The action showed the respect that one hard man had for another and will never be forgotten by the people of Blaina where Terry played his rugby all his life turning down numerous offers to join premier clubs, in a strange quirk of fate when looking for Ray Price on Google i noticed that Ray was in remission from cancer the very reason i was trying to contact him in that Terry is now going through a very hard time with the same illness.

I thought that a get well card from the great man would lift his spirits no end,if anyone out there could e.mail his address it would be very much appreciated.

Thankyou very much
