Profile

Llanelli legend Albert Jenkins won 14 caps for Wales after returning from fighting in World War One for the 38th Welsh Regiment, and was part of the Llanelli side that defeated the All Blacks 3-0 in 1926.

A centre, Jenkins made his Wales debut against England in 1920. His finest hour in a Wales shirt came against Ireland in the 1920 Five Nations, when he scored a try and had a hand in three others for Bryn Williams as Wales downed the Irish 28-4 and topped the table. He died in Llanelli in 1953, aged 58.
