Brian McTigue Player Profile

A brilliant leader of the Great Britain Lions. Regarded as the best ball playing forward to come out of the UK. The Aussies had no answer to McTigue.

In post-war test matches McTigue "played" with the opposition teams as he off loaded ball after ball in tackles. Such skills were often rewarded with tries. He was a gifted player.
