Neath RFC

Neath RFC is saddened to hear of the loss of Mike Griffiths after a long illness.

Mike, popularly known as “Tubby”, played for his home club Glynneath, Neath and Aberavon and later became coach, committeeman and fixture-secretary of Glynneath RFC.

A real rugby man of the best sort, Mike made his debut for Neath at prop in 1980/81 and his son Jon followed the same path to The Gnoll and made 84 appearances in the second row, Mike often balancing out his Glynneath duties to support him.

Mike’s loss will be felt throughout the local rugby community and Neath RFC’s deepest condolences go to Jon and the rest of the family.
