Kevin being presented with his 400 tie and trophy for his unique achievements by Dorian Taylor, Quins Committee on the 2nd April 2016.



1. First game 21/02/1976 Ystradgynlais at Home.

2. Has the record of having played 162 consecutive “League Appearances” between 1979/80 and 1987/88 (18 league games each season). This is still a Welsh Rugby record and has been certified by the Welsh Rugby Union. 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.
