Way back in 1996 I played for Norwich 1st XV in a Norfolk Cup fixture v Eccles & Attleborough RFC . The final score was 177-3 in our favour (as a winger I scored 7 tries that day (making me top try scorer), it was the most tries I ever scored in one match). I believe that officially it was the highest score in competitive Rugby union in Great Britain at that point. What ever the situation now, I can confirm that every one of the Norwich players scored on the day except for poor old Barry O' Sullivan (playing at O centre) and Simon Vavasour (at hooker) who crossed the line and touched down but was denied by a (behind the play and very tired) ref. If this score has been bested I am not aware of it but it was a long time ago. Eccles & Attleborough took us to their local pub and led the singing that night, such was the camaraderie of rugby union in those amateur days. To reminisce contact me at
