Gareth Edwards

Gareth Edwards will always be linked with his breathtaking opening try for the Barbarians against New Zealand in 1973. A three-time British Lion, he was an almost automatic choice for the Club in a series of high-profile matches throughout the 1970s.

His eleven appearances included three games against New Zealand plus matches against Fiji, the British Isles, Scotland, Australia and in 1970 as captain against South Africa at Twickenham.

He was also a redoubtable opponent against the Clubs, not least on Easter Saturday 1976 when he inspired Cardiff and scored a try and dropped a goal as the Blue and Blacks came back from a 0-28 deficit to win a thrilling encounter by a point.
