A few years down the road

By Brian Jones

My first match for 1st XV was against Neath at the Gnoll in the pouring rain. I was travelling ninth forward but Mike Craig didn't make it so I was in. Alan Holder managed to heave a sodden wet leather ball over for a 3-0 victory. What a baptism up against at least two giants of Welsh Rugby, Rees Stevens and Roy John. What a contrast with today's rugby. Not pretty but great to play in the pack. Two seasons but then moved by my company.
