Your Say

Keith Bowen says: In many people's eyes one of the very best, if not the best player of all time. Vastly under rated but his try scoring record speaks for itself.
Although out on the wing, Billy was the complete footballer. Yes he had strength and he used it but what wasn't appreciated was his all round ability. Supremely gifted he had all the attributes and more to make him a contender to be the greatest ever. (10/04/2012)

joe tighe says: billy boston as a man he is a brilliant person and as a rugby player he was up there with the very best players such as tom van volenovan brian bevan and mick Sullivan.what price would these four bring today.i rate boston as the best of all he was the perfect player he was the complete rugby player,but nobody talks about his ability to swivel his hips while running at full pelt to shrug off a apposing player.i have seen this on many occasions when he left them floundering at thin air,and players lying on the floor in his wake, plus his jack hammer hand off (08/04/2015)
