Welcome to Robin McBryde's Testimonial site.

A word from the chairman

On the 1st October, 1994, Robin began his long and highly distinguished career for the Scarlets when he made his first appearance against Cardiff at the Arms Park.

Now, virtually a decade later, the club has granted him a Testimonial year which will run until 31st August, 2005. This, surely is a fitting reward for someone who has shown outstanding loyalty and commitment to Llanelli over such a long period. During this time he has played 228 games for Llanelli RFC. Last season, World Cup Year, he added a further 15 games for Llanelli Scarlets to that tally and has scored 18 tries along the way. In addition, he captained the club for two seasons 1997-98 and 1998-99 and was vice captain in season 1996-97.

He won 33 caps for Wales, albeit the first of those before he saw the light and moved to Stradey Park from Swansea! His most recent appearance was against Italy last March. His try count for Wales is one. He also captained a Welsh XV against New Zealand, in Cardiff, on the 10th November, 2000. To add to all these impressive records he was a British Lion in 2001 and for those of you who are interested in records other than rugby he won the Wales' Strongest Man competition in 1992!.

Robin kicks off his Testimonial Year with a dinner at Tumble Hall on Friday, 15th October when the guest speaker will be Michael Farmer, Q.C. who has made an enviable reputation for himself on the north Wales dinner circuit and elsewhere. Tickets are priced at modest £25.00 each and datails, in the first instance, may be had from Colin Stroud, telephone 01554 783904, or Dawn Jenkins, telephone 01554 773633.

I am sure you will want to show your appreciation for Robin's outstanding service to the club, especially with such an outstanding speaker to entertain us, so please book early by telephoning either of the above who will be pleased to give you further details.
