I have yet to establish whether Dr. T. J. Price-Jenkins did turn out for the Quins before moving to London Welsh. No club records exist for that period. If he did turn out even once for the Quins, there is no guarantee that there would be a match report on the game and even if there was, that Dr. Price-Jenkins’ name would be mentioned. When, in 1975, Mr T. L. Evans, Senior Geography Master at the Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Carmarthen wrote the history of Carmarthen RFC from 1875-1975, he had Dr. Price-Jenkins down on his list of Quins International players. I will, for now, accept Mr Evans’ belief on this but will continue to look for some evidence. If anyone has any further information on this I would be very glad to hear from them.
