Sad news: the whole of rugby union mourns a great hero

Tributes are flooding in for the late JPR Williams, a legendary rugby player for Wales, the British and Irish Lions, and more.


With the passing of JPR Williams last night at the age of 74, Welsh rugby is once again in mourning over the loss of another legendary figure from the 1970s.

As the nation’s valiant captain, the former London Welsh, Bridgend, and Barbarians great was widely recognized throughout Wales and was instrumental in the 1970s British Lions triumph.

One of the best full backs in history, Williams earned 55 caps for his nation during a heyday in which he shared three Grand Slam Five Nation trophies with players such as Phil Bennett, Sir Gareth Edwards, Gerald Davies, and Barry John.
