Should be a good do – even if most of us are on the Sanatogen (neat over rocks, obviously).
I’ve only got the one photo of Bill – he look bloody good for 70 .
Mind you he was only about 35 at the time.
It’s a team photo of the Princes XV – Bill’s next to Dunky.
Ian McGeechan is also about to turn 70 – a rugby coincidence? I don’t think so!
