Rodney Parade to host fundraising match for former Wales hooker Waters

A KEN Waters XV will take to the field at Rodney Parade in a game as part of the former Wales hooker's fundraising drive for motor neurone disease charities.

The ex-front row forward, who won a cap against Western Samoa in the 1991 World Cup, was diagnosed with the terminal illness in 2017.

Inspired by the efforts of ex-Scotland and Lions lock Doddie Weir, 57-year-old Waters has gone on a fundraising drive and has enlisted the help of his former clubs.

Players from the five teams he represented – Newbridge, Cwmbran, Abergavenny, Risca and Caerleon – will join forces to take on a Monmouthshire XV in Newport on Wednesday, May 8 (kick-off 7.15pm).
