Place Of Birth Swansea
Haydn James Mainwaring.   1 cap.   1961 v France as a centre.
DOBirth: 10/6/1933 Swansea.
Main club: Swansea.

Haydn Mainwaring was the third ‘one-capper’ in three successive internationals of 1961, but he will live in memory for a massive tackle on South African captain Avril Malan as the Barbarians defeated the Springboks in 1961. He was then at full back, but much of his rugby was played as a forward. At Bishop Gore School he played for Wales Secondary Schools against France and England in 1951 and Yorkshire and England in 1952, and he was a Wales under-15 cap in 1947 and 1948. He played for Swansea 95 times from 1951-52 until 1962-63 scoring 229 points (17t,38c,33p,1dg), also turning out for Harlequins, London Welsh, Hampshire, the Navy (while serving in the Royal Marines) and the Combined Services. He appeared for Swansea against South Africa in 1960 and was on the Barbarians committee for many years until 1998. He now lives in Newport.
