When historians reminisce about the Welsh conveyor belt of world class fly-halves the name of Malcolm Dacey will perhaps not be mentioned but the fly-half was nevertheless a player of skill, imagination and bravery.

Born in Swansea, Malcolm Dacey played his club rugby for Bonymaen, Swansea, Cardiff and Pontypool, making 32 appearances at the Arms Park. He gained 15 Welsh Caps between 1983-1987 making his debut in the 1983 Five Nations Championship against England. As well as one non capped appearance against Japan in 1993, a match in which he scored a try.

Dacey also made an appearance for the British and Irish Lions, coming on as a replacement against an Overseas XV in 1986, as well as appearances for Wales ‘B’ and the Barbarians.
