Aberavon RFC are saddened to hear of the death of our former centre Neil Hutchins who passed away aged 62 on Tuesday.
Neil joined the club from Treorchy RFC in the mid seventies and was an outstanding centre going on to represent Wales B and also the Barbarians in the 1978 game against New Zealand in Cardiff.
Following his time with Aberavon he joined Cardiff RFC and then returned to captain Treorchy where after his playing days he became club chairman which was a role he held for 12 years.
Arguably he played his best rugby at Aberavon and he was held in huge respect by everyone at the club.
Our thoughts are with his wife, his three sons and his family at this sad time.
