Neath Rugby Supporters Club are today proud to launch our Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame will recognise and honour individuals synonymous with Neath RFC – the legendary figures who have shown exceptional commitment and contribution to the club.
Starting this year, Neath Rugby Supporters Club will induct three new members into the Hall of Fame. The inductees could be players, coaches, administrators or any individual from any era who has shown a remarkable loyalty and commitment to Wales’ oldest rugby club.
So who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame? Well, that is where you come in.
Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be asking supporters to nominate any individual who you feel will be worthy of inclusion in the Hall of Fame. They can be a player, a coach, an administrator or volunteer. Basically, any person who has made a significant contribution to the Neath RFC.
We’ll then form a small panel of Neath Rugby Supporters Club members, who will whittle all the nominations down to a final three. These three will then be inducted into the Hall of Fame at a special celebration evening at the end of the season.
There’ll be no shortage of candidates spread across the decades. The likes of Rees Stephens, Courtney Meredith, Dai Morris Brian Thomas, Brian Williams, Gareth Llewellyn or maybe Adam Jones are all likely to feature in people’s thinking, but anyone who has made an outstanding contribution to Neath RFC can be nominated.

The evening will also incorporate the supporters club’s Player of the Year awards. It is envisaged that the evening will take place in May (exact date to be confirmed)
