A former Monmouth Boys’ school pupil who went on to captain the Wales Rugby Team has died.

After playing for Monmouth School in the 1970s, he went on to club side Pontypool, then played 16 times for Wales between 1980 and 1984, captaining the team on six occasions.

After retirement he became a respected rugby broadcaster, living just outside the village of Cross Ash where his sons went to school.

Butler died in his sleep on a charity trek in Peru.
