Roy Roberts

Position: Lock

Roy Roberts played for Cardiff between 1936 and 1949 appearing in 150 games and scoring 14 tries (a figure that would certainly have been far higher but for the intervention of war). In the 1947 – 8 season he played in 38 out of the 41 matches that were played by the first team. At the end of the 1948 – 9 season he joined Pontypridd, where he became first team captain.
