Guess who has a copy of the Notorious 50 years in GREEN, WHITE & BLACK? - Our much loved Wales Captain..... Sam Warburton!
In the days leading up to the 2016 Six Nations Championship, Wales Captain Sam Warburton was presented with a copy of the Gwernyfed Rugby Football Club book ’50 Years in Green, White and Black’ by Gwernyfed stalwart Mike Eckley.
Mike was invited down to meet Sam at the WRU Training Barn at the teams Vale of Glamorgan Headquarters as the squad prepares for their opening fixture in Dublin next week.
The book, that was produced as part of Gwernyfed’s 50th Anniversary Celebrations chronicles the history of rugby in Breconshire in 1965 to the present day. It records results and reports from the first ever Gwernyfed XV to the Under Sevens in the Club’s 50th Season. If you are a past player then your name is likely in print and you may well appear in one of the over 100 photos in the publication!
