From Current & Former Players
'You can probably imagine what Newport RFC meant to me. I took great pride in pulling on the Black & Amber jersey of one of the leading clubs in the world. It was a privilege to wear the Newport blazer, secure in the knowledge that people would recognise you were part of 'the' rugby club. In particular at a time when we were beating major touring sides, winning championships and cup trophies.'
'Playing alongside internationals and British Lions was a privilige.'
'Newport RFC has had a huge impact on my life and was at the very centre of it for over 30 years. Friendships and associations developed over the years with players and supporters that are very much cherished.'
'I would like to wish you well at the launch and every success with the Trust Fund.'
Jeff Watkins (378 games, 20 tries, club chairman)
