Very sad news my lasting memory was of Terry playing for GB in a test match in Australia and meeting big Arnie Beetson head on in a tackle. Terry was first up, looked down at Arnie and said " What's up with her ?" He then hid behind two players and bent double in pain but no Ausie saw him. God bless and rest in peace big man.

All Rovers fans should read his book and then you realise what a true Rovers legend he was and his love for Rovers comes across loud and clear

It makes you realise how mortal we all are, because Terry was indestructable!

In the very early sixties you didn't recover easily from TB, you were lucky to come out of it alive! To have such a long, distinguished professional rugby career after such a debilitating disease was truly remarkable, and proof that he was a man apart. It may have been that he once stared death in the face, but nothing daunted him on the pitch.

I never knew him personally, but I hear he was a natural comedian with a very dry sense of humour.

RIP Terry......A true legend!

Stick it into Google or the Amazon search box.  Sometimes you can get lucky with second hand copies.
