Interview - Peter Thomas
Born in Edinburgh in 1943, Peter Thomas moved to Merthyr at the end of the Second World War. From 1961 he played for Cardiff Youth for two seasons. His progression to senior rugby saw him playing for Ebbw Vale for two years before returning to the Arms Park. The majority of Peter’s career was with the ‘Rags’ (Cardiff Athletic) gaining his ‘Rags’ cap and being part of the team that won the Silver Ball in 1966. His first XV debut came in a game against Chester in 1966, one of eleven first team appearances between 1966 and 1968. Always known as Peter Thomas ‘pies’ to differentiate him from Peter Thomas ‘RAF’, who also played hooker for Cardiff in the 1960’s. A lifelong supporter of the Blue and Blacks Peter Thomas contributed a great deal to the club. He served as Chairman of Cardiff Rugby from 1996 when the game went professional and continued in that role as Chairman of Cardiff Blues. In 2019 Peter decided to step down as Chairman but remained a major shareholder in the company with the honorary position of Life President of Cardiff Rugby.
