A man who’s contribution to Welsh rugby history is completely unique, is to share some of his many sporting memories in a special programme on BBC Radio Cymru.

Clive Rowlands is the only man ever to have played, coached, managed and been President of the WRU.

He was also British Lions manager and manager of the Welsh side that achieved Wales’ best ever ranking in a World Cup - at the inaugural tournament in 1987.

Now, as Clive turns 80, he chats to one of his most famous former pupils, Sir Gareth Edwards.

In a programme produced by independent media company Sgript, to be broadcast on BBC Radio Cymru, Clive and Gareth re-visit their coach/player relationship, and share some behind the scenes gems.

Programme producer, Rebecca Hayes said: “It was a privilege to produce this programme to mark Clive’s 80th birthday.

"His contribution to Welsh rugby has been immense, and hearing the tales that he and Gareth regaled, kept us, and should keep the programme’s audience, very well entertained."

Clive Rowlands was born and brought up, in Abercrave, and still lives in his beloved Cwmtwrch.

As a scrum-half, his legendary kicking abilities (which earned him the nick-name Bootsy) brought about a change in rugby laws, and his motivational speeches as Captain ensured he is synonymous with the word Calon (heart).

Clive is the coach who first selected Sir Gareth Edwards as Welsh Captain, and to this day, the pair share a relationship of mutual respect and admiration.

Gareth added: “Clive is like a big brother to me.”

Listeners can hear more from the duo on BBC Radio Cymru, at 1pm on Monday, May 7.
