FROM Pontypool Museum’s digital archives are two images which take a look back at former rugby sides from across the area.

As the NatWest Six Nations draws to its conclusion, it is a chance of club teams to move back into full focus.

One of the images shows the Cwmbran Rugby Club side from the 1906/1907 season, and the other is of Pontypool Excelsiors from the 1926/1927 season.

These images were donated by the Pontypool Museum as part of its digital archive, which aims to preserve historic documents, images and records from the area.

To find out more about the digital archive, contact the museum at or call 01495 752036.

The Free Press thanks the museum for allowing the paper to use these images.
