Tom Holley

Position:

Tom Holley, a back row forward, gave years and years of service to Cardiff RFC even after having lost his best years during war-time, but continued to play until 1949.

He made his 'RAGS' debut in 1937/38 and gained his Athletic cap the following season.

After his playing days were over Tom remained with the club as trainer and masseur and also performed these roles for the WRU and visiting touring sides. He once saved the life of the Argentinian prop Mario Carruccio who lost consciousness during a game at the Arms Park against Cardiff RFC.
