David Kenneth Jones

David Kenneth Jones was born in Cross Hands, Carmarthenshire, on 7 August 1941 and educated at Gwendraeth Grammar School and Cardiff University before going to Oxford University where he gained a Blue in the 1963 Varsity Match. He played at fly-half and captain for Welsh Secondary Schools in 1959 and 1960 and made his senior debut for Llanelli while still at school. After five seasons with Llanelli, plus club rugby at Oxford and with London Welsh, he joined Cardiff in 1965. Known as 'DK', he was first capped at centre for Wales as a 20-year-old in 1962 and later that year toured South Africa with the British Isles, scoring a spectacular try in the first test against the Springboks. He also scored two tries against Australia on his second Lions' tour, to Australasia, four years later. Unusually, his final international appearance was at the age of 25 in 1966. By then he had gained 14 caps for Wales, one on the wing against South Africa in 1964, and scored 12 tries in 29 games for the British Isles, including six tests. Originally a teacher, he later became an industrialist and chairman of CBI (Wales).
