One Team – One Race, Honouring the Cardiff Bay Rugby Codebreakers


We wanted to share this great picture of the legend Billy Bostonwith ex rugby league international icons Jim Mills and Glyn Shaw with the CEO of Wales Rugby League, Gareth Kear,in their Cardiff Bay Rugby Codebreakers T-shirts.

‘One Team - One Race, Honouring the Cardiff Bay Rugby Codebreakers' has been set up to create a permanent monument to some of the country's greatest sporting heroes and is designed to ensure their stories, and the story of the proud and vibrant multi-cultural community which helped shape them, are never forgotten.

The project is raising money to create a statue of 3 of these sporting heroes chosen from 13 sports stars who made a telling contribution playing in Rugby League over the past 120 years. All thirteen nominees grew up within a three-mile radius of Cardiff Bay. Many battled prejudice and racism before leaving Wales to find fame as Rugby League superstars in the North of England.

A public vote and a selection panel selected Billy Boston, Gus Risman and Clive Sullivan to adorn the statue.

We have big news coming soon on where the monument could be sited in Cardiff and an update on how fundraising is going.
