With great sadness we announce the passing of Mark 'Jungle' John

UPDATE: The funeral is due to be held on Friday 5th May at St John's, Risca Rd, Newporty (1:30pm)

Former Builth RFC player and friend, Mark John passed away peacefully after losing his battle with cancer. 


Mark will be greatly and fondly remembered as a true character of the club and we were extremely proud as a group to help arrange a charity match between The Bulls and Tref-Y-Clawdd (Knighton RFC) last October.  Over 300 spectators turned up to support the event, a match that was on Mark's 'bucket list'. That particular fixture also held a place close to his heart as he played for both Builth Wells and Knighton during the 80's.

At this very sad time we are thinking of his mother, wife Alison and his two children. We would like to also show our support to his three brothers. 

We'll miss you Jungle.
