Kenneth 'Ken' Jeffrey Jones OBE (30 December 1921 - 18 April 2006) was a Welsh sprinter and record breaking Welsh international rugby union footballer. He is best known in Wales for his contribution to Welsh rugby, but most notably for his winning try against the All Blacks in 1953. Jones was born in Blaenavon, Monmouthshire on 30 December 1921 and as a youth attended West Monmouth Grammar School in Pontypool. There, under the guidance of Gilbert Garnett, he nurtured a skill in rugby union, representing his school and during the holidays he would play for Talywain. During the 1939/40 season, he was selected for the Welsh Secondary School XV, his first Welsh cap and later that year he attended St. Paul's Training College in Cheltenham.
