Surely the Flying Pickets' support for left-wing movements in the early 80s means he should be eulogised in "Political Frailty" as well?

Ah, but he also appeared in Corrie, Eastenders and Pobol Y Quim so maybe his death should be listed in the Betty Driver Memorial Superstar Soapstar thread.

Couldn't find the rugby thread. Dr Jack Matthews, who played 17 times for Wales has died aged 92.
