The Annual Dinner and Player Awards Night was held in the St Helen's Lounge at Swansea RFC on Friday 25th May. the evening was graced by the presence of a favourite son of the club, former 'All Whites' captain and Welsh cap Stuart Davies, who was Special Guest Speaker at the event.

 

MC for the evening, former Swansea back Huw Rees kept things moving  along and after a satisfying dinner, introduced Stuart Davies as the speaker for the evening.

Well known n the rugby media world and a favourite son at St Helen's the former Swansea captain gave an often hilarious insight into the game during his playing days. Bringing out character sketches of several team mates and opponents and alluding to the famous win in 1992 over World Champions Australia, Stuart inevitably ended with his famous quote prior to that match and Garin Jenkins' quip. If you missed it we will have to ask Stuart back again for more.
