At the half-time interval of the Wales v Japan U20's match at St Helens on Tuesday evening, a cheque for £1331.42 was presented toward the "Choosen Charity" of the Rhodri Jones Memorial Fund. It was received on behalf of the fund by Nigel Jones, father of Rhodri Jones, accompanied by swansea RFC's Dai Watts who knew Rhodri.

At the club's end of season dinner we did our final fund raising effort for this season's charity the Rhodri Jones Memorial Fund for bone cancer research. A raffle for a wonderful photo, donated by Dave Dow and signed by guest speaker for the night Shaun Edwards, raised an excellent £297. This brought our seasons final total to £1331.42, which also meant we beat last season total. So a huge thank you to club for their support, the coaches and squad for their time and efforts, but most of all to all of you who gave so generously.

Nigel Jones, Rhodri's dad, commented " Major thanks to all supporters and everyone at Swansea Rugby Club I can't thank you enough for your generosity, be assured all the money you gave will go directly to research into bone cancer ". Nigel's been a great encouragement over the season.
Remarkably this season's efforts have seen you give over £13,500 in the last 7 seasons, to 6 different local charities which says so much about the generous nature of Swansea Rugby club. Thank you.
