When Rhys Jenkins led the Newport team onto the field at The Knoll on Saturday it was his 100th appearance in a Newport RC jersey. Newport born and raised in Caerleon, the popular back row forward is in his sixth season at Rodney Parade and is as consistent as ever with his all action performances in attack and defence.
Happy to play at any position across the back row, this season has seen Rhys be the Mr Consistent of the team with some outstanding performances. He was on fine form Saturday leading by example and was unlucky not to have a try to his name after crossing the line.
Rhys will receive his club cap at the end of season dinner where he is sure to receive a warm reception from his team mates and our supporters.
