    TRANSCRIPT: Speech: "Well there's no doubt my enthusiasm has waned from time to time but there's not doubt that I probably thrived on the big occasion and I think throughout my career there's been opportunity for those occasions whether the're playing International matches or the're Barbarian marches, good club matches or cup matches and I think one has got to predetermine somewhat the peaks when one's in the season and I think if you can reach those peaks a certain part of the season then your enthusiasm should be alright



    Reporter: "Because of television millions of people have been able to share your exploits on the field has any particular try, and particular game given you great satisfaction?



    Edwardes: "Quite a number have, well all the matches really give me satisfaction, hence the reason I played on for so long, but I mean there are obviously those matches which you can reflect on, especially the Barbarians match for Wales, the one against Scotland notably when I had an opportunity to score a try in it but along the way there have been certain peaks obviously the Welsh Grand Slam, a lam side of 71 and 76 probably be the pinnicles of the decade".



    Reporter: "Well you're well accustomed to Twickenham what about this English game".



    Edwards "Well from the players point of view the English are probably the hardest side to overcome especially on their own ground, probably because of the fact that they've invariably got a good pack and this season seems to see with probably one of this best sides they've had for a number of times but I think we've got the experience all round in the side we are obviously very much in command after last year but just to recap I think it will be extremely hard probably for an hour or so and then I hope that our experience will pull us through".
