I used to say that I spent half my life breaking bones on the rugby field, then the other half putting them back together in the operating theatre.

J.P.R. Williams (born 2 March 1949), known universally as J.P.R. Williams (a necessary disambiguation given that he was a contemporary and frequent team-mate of another John Williams, J. J. Williams), played rugby union for Wales between 1969 and 1981. Playing in the position of fullback, he was noted for his aggressive attacking style. With his long side-boards and socks around his ankles, "JPR" was an iconic figure within the legendary 1970s Wales team.
