    R.I.P. John Pullin

    Former England captain and Bristol hooker John Pullin has died, aged 79.
    "I remember vividly that we came out of the old Lansdowne Pavilion," says Moloney. "Before we got anywhere near the back pitch, we were held back by a man called Frank Whisker. I thought it was very clever of him because England were getting a standing ovation. It was seen as if they (crowd) were thanking them (England) rather than welcoming the Irish team onto the pitch. They received a considerably long standing ovation."
