Rhiwbina Rugby Club pays tribute to Alun Wynne

Rhiwbina Rugby Football Club has paid tribute to long-time club servant and former player, Alun Wynne, who has died, aged 82.

In the latest programme, for Saturday's (23 March) game, club chairman Richard Price writes "... not only was he a great scrum half who represented the club for many seasons, he later took on the role of Hon Secretary for the next 30 years.

"It was Alun himself that helped Rhiwbina have WRU [Welsh Rugby Union] status and his help and work ethic will not be forgotten, All Our thoughts are with the family at this time."

In a further tribute, John Humphreys writes of Alun's "remarkable contribution to local and regional sport".

"He starred as a very combative scrum half for Rhiwbina in his playing days, but when they were over, he took on the role of Hon Secretary and remained in that position for the best part of three decades, cementing his invaluable position in Rhiwbina RFC history."

He concludes: "As a club, we have so much to be thankful for in terms of Alun’s contribution to our development and success and we send our sincere condolences to his devoted wife Sue and his family and friends, who will miss him so much."

🏉 Meanwhile, after a 10-15 defeat by Barry RFC last weekend, Rhiwbina's 1st XV play their final home game of the WRU Division 1 East Central league season on Saturday (30 March), facing St Joseph's RFC at Caedelyn Park. Kick-off is at 2.30pm.
