Who are the fifteen best players ever to wear the sacred Scarlet jersey of Llanelli?

This is a debate which rages not only in the rugby hotbeds of west Wales, but also all around the world because, as Willie John McBride says in his foreword to this book, ‘To read through The Greatest Scarlets XV Ever is to read the Who’s Who of rugby’.

And who better to have the final word on these rugby greats than the greatest of them all, Phil Bennett? Will you, however, agree with his selection?

Who would you choose at full-back – Terry Davies or Terry Price? Who should partner Albert Jenkins at centre – Ray Gravell or Jonathan Davies? Will there be room for Derek and Scott Quinnell in the back row? And, surely, there can be only one logical choice at outside half?

Prepare to be entertained, reassured – and surprised!
