Garfield Owen was one of the great full-backs of his generation in both rugby codes. He played rugby union for Newport and won six caps for Wales in 1955 and 1956. He then switched to rugby league, signing for Halifax live on the BBC Sportsview programme.
After five successful years at Halifax he joined Keighley, where he had a spell as player-coach. He retired from rugby league in 1965, and still lives in Halifax. This authorised biography, including a foreword by Robert Gate, covers his from his early years in South Wales to his work today fundraising for research into Parkinson’s disease.
