CHARLIE PRITCHARD The World Rugby Museum is hosting an exclusive exhibition to highlight the career of acclaimed Welsh rugby star, Charlie Pritchard. Pritchard appeared in the infamous game in Cardiff in December 1905, where the Welsh defeated the New Zealand All Blacks for the first time in their history, breaking the All Blacks colossal twenty-seven match-winning run. The press were almost unanimous in acclaiming Pritchard as the standout Welsh forward, whose tackling and work-rate kept the visitors at bay. He would go on to play fourteen times for Wales. Shortly after hanging up his boots, Pritchard enlisted with the South Wales Borderers and arrived on the Western Front in June 1916. It was here that he heroically lost his life in action on a night-raid just two months later.
