Alexander Givvons (1913-2002)

'[Alexander] Givvons played a total of 241 first class matches as halfback and later loose forward for Oldham from 1933 to 1949 (with a break between 1944 and 1948 where he played for Huddersfield). He earned six caps for Wales between 1936 and 1939, and was the second Black player to represent Wales in Rugby League (after George Bennett, also from Newport, in 1935), finishing on the winning side in all six games. He also toured France twice with the Great Britain Rugby League team.' -- Rebecca Eversley-Dawes (2022)
