Abertillery RFC

About

Abertillery's roots go back to 1883 and the town and its rugby team have been synonymous with good reason. The Green and Whites have been Welsh Champions twice, hosted the All Blacks, Springboks, Wallabies and other international sides at The Park, and provided players for Wales and the British Lions, including Haydn Morgan, Allan Lewis and the late Alun Pask. The home of the Green and Whites is Abertillery Park (cap. 15,000), widely acknowledged as one of the most picturesque grounds in the rugby world.
