Llanelli stars remember 1972 win over All Blacks


The 40th anniversary of Llanelli's historic rugby victory over New Zealand will be toasted later at a dinner being held for 1,200 people.

The Scarlets beat the mighty All Blacks 9-3 at Stradey Park on 31 October 1972 in one of rugby's most famous upsets.

Roy Bergiers scored the try that set the team on the road to their most famous victory after a penalty kick hit the post.

Former Wales and British Lion star Phil Bennett, who took the kick, said the win had been planned long in advance by coach Carwyn James, who had guided the Lions to a famous series win over New Zealand in the previous year.
