Two months after being so badly injured in a match for Neath against Cardiff, Gareth (Snid) Jones has passed away. He died peacefully in the University Hospital Wales on June 16. The whole village is devastated by this tragedy and we can only offer our condolences to Snid’s family. He was a young man, full of life, with a great sense of humour and of course a tremendous skill and expertise as a scrum half. He will be sadly missed, not least by the many thousands of people he has entertained on the rugby pitch at Glyncoch, at Beddau, at Pontypridd, where of course he was part of the Konica Minolta cup winning side, and at Neath where he was part of the league championship squad twice. Rest in Peace Snid.
