Grav died six years ago to this day, he was a true reflection of what being a Scarlet is all about . He was a very proud Scarlet and Welshman long may his legacy lives on. We remember Mari and the girls and the rest of the family today, and think what we can do as supporters to respect that memory. Hedd Perffaith Hedd.

Hear hear... I'll be raising a glass to his memory, and a certain game he starred in on this date 41 years ago!  As you said, a true Scarlet.. never to be forgotten.

He was the reason my Dad supported Llanelli and therefore the reason I do too. Absolute hero and a true Scarlet! He will never be forgotten.
Think, Think, Think .... Its a thinking game.

Still hard to realise at times that Grav is not with us any more.
Grav touched the lives of so many people, and enriched each and every one.
His memory will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone who ever met him.
He'll always be in mine!

I must admit, the memories of Grav are still fresh in my mind, I feel his presence every time I cross the Loughor Bridge to visit Llanelli and Parc y Scarlets .. His spirit will always be with us ..

Watching this earlier today brought a tear to my eye !


Herman Tours ... Still the best way to travel !

Grav and Budgie, a fantastic centre partnership. But then they played for the Scarlets, a team full of magicians with a pack of forwards the backs knew they could rely on to get the ball back to them.
Remember talking with Grav in the centre of Carmarthen, when he had his arm in a sling.
Duw, its a sad dayCry

Never forget the moment I first met him. Brought joy and happiness to the lives of everyone he met. Will forever be loved and missed.
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

You took the words right out of my mouth. Couldn't have said it better. Nice one.
