Former Lions, Wales and Newport wing Ken Jones has died at the age of 84.
Ken Jones won 44 caps for Wales
Jones, who served in the RAF, started his rugby career with local side Blaenavon and Pontypool before joining Newport in time for the 1946/47 season.
He won 44 caps for Wales and scored 17 tries, also playing three Tests for the British and Irish Lions during the 1950 tour to New Zealand.
An all-round athlete, Jones represented Britain at the 1948 Olympics in London and won silver in the 4x100m relay.
Jones captained Britain at the European Games in Berne in 1954 and represented Wales at the Empire Games in 1954 in Vancouver.
He was the Welsh sprint champion for seven consecutive years, using that pace on the rugby field to score 146 tries in 293 games for Newport, captaining the side in 1950/1 and 1953/4.
Jones was Wales' record caps holder until Gareth Edwards surpassed his total nearly 20 years later.
For his services to sport, Jones was awarded the OBE in 1960.
There will be a minute's silence at Rodney Parade before the Celtic League match between Newport Gwent Dragons and Cardiff Blues on Wednesday night, and also before Newport's Principality League match against Cross Keys.
