Sad Loss

News has filtered though today that ex-captain Byron Bater has passed away.

Byron entertained the supporters of Tonna RFC from the late 70's to the mid 80's, he was from the Phil Bennett mold of running outside half

When he captained the 1st fifteen in 1980 they won the Div E title in the old West Wales League.

He worked in the old BP Refinery and when it closed moved with his family still with BP to England.

Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time, it was a pleasure to play with him.
