Dragons are unveiling Kyle Stanley as their scrum half.

Think of good No. 7s and you think small, tough and crafty players.

Kyle is about 5' 11" tall (1.80m)

Will he be the tallest No 7 in the professional game?

Any other tall scrum halves (7s) past or present come to mind?

..and a few first grade games at 7 as well.

He's the tallest I can think of.

Didn't John Ford play halves for the cooks in the World Cup? He's 6'5

According to ever reliable Wikipedia Karl Pryce played at stand-off half (6) back in the Bulls' 30-10 victory over Wests Tigers in 2006.
Close then, but no coconut  :tomato:
