PL Jones

PL Jones

Position: Wing

PL Jones was one of Cardiff's most popular players. The blockbusting wing was a one-man tank with an unforgettable style that stayed with all who saw him – a Jonah Lomu style player before the New Zealander was even born. He played 233 games for the Blue and Blacks in the late 1960s and early 70s scoring 122 tries including a try in the club's famous victory over the 1975 Wallabies.
