Len Kowalski, chairman of the Neath Rugby Supporters’ Club said, “The Hall of Fame awards are always a difficult choice and Neath RFC has produced so many top class players over the years. Hopefully we have come up with a good balance but there are many more to come.
“The evening is always eagerly anticipated and it brings together our famous past with the present and we look forward to May 26.”
