THE family of former Wales rugby international and broadcaster Cliff Morgan will be wearing "a splash of red" at his funeral.

Morgan, who became a star as an outside half for Wales, before becoming a commentator, died on August 29 aged 83.

He played for Cardiff RFC and earned 29 caps for Wales between 1951 and 1958. He also captained the British Lions on their tour to South Africa in 1955, which was drawn 2-2.

He was also a member of the last Welsh team to beat the All Blacks and will forever be associated with his commentary on the Barbarians v All Blacks match in 1973.

The funeral service will take place at Holy Trinity Church, Isle of Wight at 12.30pm on Friday.

The London Welsh choir is to sing at the local sailing club afterwards.
