About Isaac Begbie:
“A solid man who begs no man’s pardon. He knocks people down like an auctioneer disposing of goods and chattels. Loves work, and revels in it. He is slow but sure, and so intent on the play that he has never been known to smile during its progress. Today’s responsibility had made him even more austere; but it sits lightly on his broad shoulders. His opponents and not he will be the first to feel its weight. He got his first cap against Ireland last year, and his first against England this. The League has suspended him, but as he weighs 12 ½ stones, and stands 5ft. 8in., he has not lost his grip of good Mother Earth.”
