Graham Price MBE
Graham Price is a rugby legend. Graham earned his first of 41 caps for Wales in 1975, against France scoring a try recently voted the 5th best try ever scored by a welsh player. He went on to play in 2 Grand Slams and won 4 consecutive Triple Crowns. Graham formed part of the legendary ‘Pontypool Front Row’ with his colleagues Bobby Windsor and Charlie Faulkner, or ‘The Viet Gwent’ as Max Boyce dubbed them.
He played 12 Tests for the British Lions in New Zealand and South Africa, making him the most capped Welsh player in Lions history. He occupies 3rd place in the all-time list behind Willie-John McBride and Dickie Jeeps. It is also the record for a Lions prop.
He was chosen by Bill McLaren and Fran Cotton as a member of their respective ‘Greatest Ever World XV’s’ and in 2013 he was inducted into The International Rugby Hall of Fame by being selected as a member of their ‘Best Team of All Time‘. Then, in 2007, Graham was awarded the MBE for Services to Rugby.
Graham has been a Welsh Ambassador for LV= SOS KIT AID, an organisation that helps financially disadvantaged youngsters in the poorer emerging nations play Rugby by providing them with unwanted kit collected in the UK.
