Since Wales entered the international rugby arena in 1881, Swansea Rugby Club has been at the forefront in the development of international players of talent and fame. The list below of 164 players between 1882 and 2013 is a testament to this, but only part of the story of the huge contribution to rugby that the club has made. The list includes those players who have represented other countries while playing for the ALL WHITES.
