Graham ‘Gomer’ Evans

We were deeply sorry to learn that one of our greatest players, Graham Evans, known as Gomer, passed away on Friday morning. In the 1970s, he was a backrow forward of exceptional ability, who played many times for us and also for Gwent v the All Blacks in 1972.

Club Historian Roy Lewis said, “Gomer was the nicest of men. Everyone who knew him, played with him or saw him play will be very sad to hear of his death.”

Our deepest condolence go to his nearest and dearest.

Funeral arrangements
