Fitting tribute to the late McLaren

I JUST wanted to say thanks to Kevin Myers for his beautifully evocative piece on the late Bill McLaren (Irish Independent, January 22).

I was saddened to hear of his passing as he was the definitive “voice of rugby” on television for as long as I can remember.

Ironically enough, I’ve never even had more than a passing interest in rugby – but I always loved listening to Mr McLaren’s commentaries. He epitomised the notion of rugby being “a game for ruffians played by gentlemen”.
