Guest Speaker: Phil Bennet OBE

Phil Bennett OBE rose from humble origins to reach the very highest pinnacles of rugby, captaining Llanelli RFC, The British Lions and The Barbarians. His flair, skill and instinctive abilities made him a firm favourite not only with Welsh fans, but with crowds throughout the rugby playing world. His incredible exploits on the field, coupled with his unassuming character off it, have established ‘Benny' as a true rugby great and a sporting icon who is now in great demand as a highly entertaining after dinner speaker.

During the glory days of the 1960s and 1970s, Phil won a total of 29 Welsh caps (including eight as captain). He retired from international rugby in 1978, after captaining Wales to victory against France at Cardiff Arms Park. At the end of his international career, Phil had won a total of three Grand Slams, four Triple Crowns, and five Home Nation Championships, as well as becoming Wales' all-time record point scorer. He continued to thrill Llanelli RFC fans until 1981, hanging up his boots as the record points scorer in the Club's history.

Phil was awarded the OBE in 1979 for his services to sport. He is a member of the World Rugby Hall of Fame, the Welsh Rugby Hall of Fame and the Welsh Sporting Hall of Fame.
