“Never forgotten his roots”

“Ian is a well-liked guy and we are looking forward to putting on a memorable night in Cwmbran. We hope fans and friends along with current and former players from the likes of Cwmbran RFC, Newport RFC, Pontypridd RFC, the Dragons and the Ospreys will come and show their support for him.”
