Neath RFC

Neath RFC are saddened to hear that former Aberavon RFC and Wales wing of the late 1950’s and 1960’s John Collins has passed away after illness.

John was a very popular character and had many good friends in the Neath club including his rival wings of the time Cyril Roberts and Keith Maddocks.

A product of Aberavon Green Stars RFC, John featured in the Neath-Aberavon combined side which played South Africa in 1961. He was a member of Aberavon’s championship-winning side of that same season and won 10 caps for Wales.
