Kevin being presented with his 400 tie and trophy for his unique achievements by Dorian Taylor, Quins Committee.
1. Kevin played his first game for the Quins 1st XV at Carmarthen Park on the 21st February 1976 against Ystradgynlais.
2. Has the record of having played 162 consecutive “League Appearances.” This is still a Welsh Rugby record and has been confirmed by the WRU. For a prop to complete this consecutive record is truly magnificent .
3. Played his last Quins 1st XV game away at Bridgend RFC on the 24th January 1998.
4. Kevin went on to play a few seasons for Carmarthen Athletic RFC so had he stayed with the Quins who knows what his total Quins appearances could have been.
