Former Wales and British Lions captain and coach John Dawes tells why he believes Norling was such an outstanding practitioner of his art. Rugby legend Ray Gravell talks about Norling's presence and empathy with the players as well as the time when he paraded at Ray's beloved Stradey Park in tight, tight shorts and a curly perm which drew wolf whistles from female and male supporters alike!
