Some Classic McLaren Quotes

Bill McLaren was known as ‘the voice of rugby’  here’s just a few of his gems

“He can smell a try like a forest animal”.

“The All Blacks that day looked like great prophets of doom.”

“And it’s a try by Hika the hooker from Ngongotaha.” (Wales v New Zealand 1980).

I think he also described trying to tackle Jonah Lomu as trying to tackle a snooker table.

“I’ve seen bigger legs hanging out of a crow’s nest”.

“Safe as houses; warm as toast” after a Gavin Hastings clearance kick.

On Doddie Weir (and told by Doddie) “Doddie Weir as much help as a lighthouse in the desert”.

On another lineout jumper “Jumping like a border salmon in a river”.
