ABERAVON RFC have hooked up in Los Angeles with a famous face with a passion for the club – Hollywood actor Michael Sheen.
Michael, who was raised in Baglan, is a big fan of the Wizards, albeit from afar, and he keeps a keen eye on their results.
He said he wished the club all the best for the new season, and was proud to showcase the Aberavon shirt to a global audience.
“I just want to wish Aberavon Rugby Club all the best for this new season,” he said. “The club do fantastic work with the local community and the schools and I’m sure that they’re going to have a really successful season.
“So please I urge you all to go along and support the club that defends your town week in week out, and I’m really looking forward to being able to take in a game myself when I’m home next.”
The Wizards are taking on Rotherham at the Talbot Athletic Ground in the British & Irish Cup this afternoon at 2.30pm, and are urging people to go along and support their home town club.
