STUART DAVIES COLUMN: Byron Mugford had Swansea rugby club in his blood
I WAS sad to hear of the passing of Swansea rugby club's Byron Mugford this week.
I suppose every rugby club in Wales has a Byron — a person committed to the core and the lifeblood of the club.
Swansea were incredibly fortunate to have someone like him.
During my playing days with the All Whites he was tour manager before taking over as secretary.
I always thought Byron deserved a medal for what he had to put up with as a tour manager, but he always dealt with things with a wry smile and in a sensible manner.
He was a fixture at St Helen's, someone who would get things done without question and deserves a huge debt of gratitude for what he has done for a great club — not that he would want it, because, as I said, Swansea RFC was in his blood.
He was a big rugby man, Mr Swansea rugby club and he will be sorely missed.
