John "Dick" Uzzell attended Bargoed
Grammar School and played for Welsh Schools before joining Newport. In 1963 he
played in the famous game when Newport defeated the touring All Blacks (with
Uzzell’s drop goal being the difference between the two sides). A selection for
the Wales team to play the tourists was Uzzell’s deserved reward for his
performance – the first of five Wales caps that the centre would earn, his
final game in the red shirt being against France at Stade Colombes in 1965. The
following season saw a move to the Arms Park where he played for seven years
and making 54 appearances. In addition to Newport andCardiff he also played for
Cross Keys and Caldicot.
