William Pollock McLaren CBE 1923 – 2010

One of the most memorable sports commentators of my childhood along with Peter O'Sullivan's hoarse hearsay and Arthur Montford's strobing jackets.
"I'm no hod carrier but I'd be laying bricks if he was running at me." (About Jonah Lomu).
RIP Bill.


  1. Conan,

    If there is a heaven, he'll have some great players to comment on. RIP indeed!
