Former left wing threequarter Lyn Davies who died earlier this month at the age of 64 made three appearances for Wales during the 1966 Championship season.
Davies was an outstanding performer for the Bridgend club in particular, firstly as a player and then as a coach, but began and finished his playing career with his home village of Blaengarw.
He was born at Blaengarw on February 02 1940 and was later to appear for Bridgend Sports, London Welsh and then the Army and the British Army of the Rhine during his National Service. A former colliery worker, he often used his bulk to force his way over the opposing line.
In later years he made one appearance for Bridgend alongside his son Lee, both playing in the pack with Lee still playing this season for the Blaengarw club.
His international debut was at Twickenham, when he played outside clubmate Keith Bradshaw in a 1-6 win over England, then appearing in the 8-3 victory over Scotland in Cardiff and the 9-6 loss to Ireland in Dublin.
