About Clive
This is an online tribute to Clive Shell who was a Welsh international rugby union player. Clive Shell made his debut for the Wales national rugby union team 10 November 1973 against Australia where he kissed the ball on his first touch while putting the ball into a scrum. A scrum-half, he played club rugby for Aberavon RFC.
Clive Shell was one of several scrum halves of that era who were in competition with Gareth Edwards for a place in the Welsh side. Although the Australia encounter was his one and only cap, Clive Shell played for Wales against Tonga (1974). In 1977, during a Welsh Cup semi-final, Clive Shell received a broken jaw playing against Edwards and Cardiff RFC.

Clive was a friend of mine from our college days ,1967-1970 , I met him several times after as we were both teachers and keen on rugby. We always got on well what ever was happening in our lives.It was a great shock to me to hear of his death as he often appeared indestructible. It reminds one of ones own mortality. I hope he rests in the peace he deserves.
