Bill McLaren is a legend of Scottish rugby – he was not a player but an amazing commentator. To celebrate the 90th anniversary of his birthday, we tasted and reviewed the beer created by the Edinburgh based Caledonian Brewery. We loved the beer and we were very interested to learn more about Bill and his amazing contribution to the sport of rugby. To celebrate his life and career, we selected some of his best rugby quotes:
He kicked that ball like it were three pounds o’ haggis.
I look at Colin Meads and see a great big sheep farmer who carried the ball in his hands as though it was an orange pip.
I’ve hardly ever had to pay to get in (the best thing in his view about 50 years of commentary at rugby matches).
He can smell a try like a forest animal.
Here is our video review of “Bill’s” beer. Raise a glass for Bill and celebrate his life with us!
