THE BRITISH and Irish Lions will clash with 75 years of tradition and more than 1000 of the biggest names in ACT rugby history including George Gregan and David Campese when they play the Brumbies on June 18.

The 81 year old has seen a generation of legends in Canberra. So who’s the best he’s watched?
”[Dual international] Michael O’Connor he was born to play,” Hawke said. ”He’s a stand out, I coached him. I first saw him when he was about nine years old at Little Athletics in a 100 metre race.
