Evans, Wayne

G.Wayne Evans joined Pontypridd RFC as a Youth player in the 1963-1964 season after being persuaded by the late Bill Lougher and Eddie Morgan. 

He captained the Youth XV during the 1964-1965 season, and was a reserve for the Welsh Youth XV. 

Wayne (knows as 'Piggsy') made his first team debut against Neath on the 24th of April, 1965, where he packed down opposite the great Welsh All Black, Morlais Williams. The baptism of fire continued against Llanelli five days later, as he went head-to-head with the Scarlets' Norman Gale. 

Wayne started 300 first XV games for Pontypridd, and last played at the end of the 1978-1979 season. 

He went on to become Assistant Coach under Cenydd Thomas during the 1981-1982 season. 

Wayne was capped for Wales Under 16 during the 1962-1963 season.
