Favorite memory of Eric Miller was in 2000 when he came back to Leinster from Leicester and he went to watch the 1st XV take on the 2XV in Turnure RFC, the local club he would be associated with, and he was watching this match as the seconds wanted to show they were better and so hitting hard and causing one injury. Anyway Eric turned to my Dad, who i was standing beside, and said, "Dave. I think the lads are playin a bit rough".

Best memory has to be Jason Robinson's world cup final try! That or his try against the wallabies for the Lions in 2001.

Favourite moment of these legends would actually have to be Last year when the Legends game was in Ireland and when, after scoring a try, Shane Byrne runs to the crowd behind the posts, takes some guys pint and downs it and continues on playing!!! Best Captain ever!!

Jason Robinson's final act as a proffessional player - his try for Sale in the final miute against bath for the win. Not his prettiest try but one of the most memorable

Jason Robinsons world cup final try, or pretty much any time he had some space to run into. The man is a Legend

Favourite memory has got to be Austin Healey's perfect chip kick against France I think it was, Austin chipped it over the top of a ruck only for Mike Catt to run on to it and score a try. It has to be one of the best kicks ever in an England Rugby Jersey. Loved it.

Jason Leonard having to have his arm lifted round the hooker because his neck was nakered so he couldnt move his arm, so the ref wouldnt realise and he wouldnt be taken off, which eventualy ended in him having surgery where they had to go in from the front because there was to much muscle in the back of his neck to do the operation the normal way

Lots of comments about Jason Robinson already, but watching him in the Legends game last year in 2010 was great. The whole game was enjoyable but he had some amazing plays and hardly seemed as if he should be retired!

Jason Robinsons run against wales putting in Greenwood for the try. One of the greatest players of all time.

As a youngster and top flite prop wannabe on a course with Jason Leonard as a guest for the day. When it cam to a Q&A question I came up with "So are you a prop because you enjoy the one on one that it offers?" In his dryest tone the answer came back "No I just wasn't quick enough to be a winger!" After 15 years propping since then....I can see where he was coming from. True Legend
