An Evening to Remember 9-3 remember the event at Ffwrnes in Llanelli

As part of their 1972–73 tour of the Northern Hemisphere, New Zealand’s fourth match saw them take on Llanelli RFC at Stradey Park, Llanelli, on 31 October 1972. In one of the most famous results in rugby union history, Llanelli won the match 9–3 in front of 20,000 spectators.

Llanelli centre Roy Bergiers scored the only try of the game, charging down a clearance by All Blacks scrum-half Lin Colling after a penalty from Phil Bennett hit the post.

New Zealand full-back Joe Karam scored a penalty to give them their only points of the game, before Llanelli wing Andy Hill hit a penalty to secure victory for the Scarlets.

This evening we will remember that glorious day and a match that has gone down in Welsh rugby history – “when all roads led to Stradey Park”.

The former BBC rugby commentator Huw Llywelyn Davies will be interviewing four Llanelli legends on the Ffwrnes stage – Derek Quinnell, Delme Thomas, Roy Bergiers and Gareth Jenkins.

There will also be a Q&A in the second half where the audience can ask the Llanelli heroes their own questions.
