Tony Clement played for Swansea from 1985 to 1999, predominantly at Fly-Half and full-Back, although his first match for the “All Whites” was against Pembrokeshire on 18th September 1985 as a scrum-half. Tony played 247 games for Swansea, scoring 319 points (61 tries, 8 cons, 4 penalties & 11 drop-goals). He represented the club against New Zealand (1989), South Africa (1994) and the famous win over World Champions Australia (1992). Tony was part of the Swansea side that played in the “Rebel” season of 1998-99. During his career at St Helens Swansea were league Champions in 1990-91, 1993-94 and 1997-98. He was also a Schweppes Cup finalist twice (1987 v Cardiff & 1992 v Llanelli) and Swalec Cup winner in 1995 (v Pontypridd). He played for Swansea against the Barbarians and played four times for that invitational side (twice against New Zealand – 1989 & 1993). Along with Keith Colclough, ‘Clem’ coached Swansea RFC from 2003-4 to 2006-7.
Renowned for his powerful “siege gun” boot, his versatility and attacking flair brought him into the Welsh fifteen in 1987 where he scored two tries on his debut against the USA. ‘Clem’ won a total of 37 caps, playing at Fly-Half, Full-Back and Centre. He also represented Wales in two World Cups (1991 & 1995). Tony was a late selection for the 1989 British & Irish Lions tour to Australia and made two appearances. He was selected again for the 1993 ‘Lions’ tour to New Zealand with seven appearances.
