Harry Wetter's Wales, Newport RFC & Monmouthshire County Rugby Caps
These are believed to be the caps of former Wales international Harry Wetter (brother of Newport and Wales Wales legend 'Jack' Wetter). Harry and Jack are my 4th cousins. They are my grandfather's mother's cousins. Harry Wetter was an English-born international, rugby union centre who played club rugby for Newport and county rugby with Glamorgan and Monmouthshire. He won just two caps for Wales but is most notable for being a member of the Newport team that beat the 1912 touring South African team. He was also a member of the Wales bowls and baseball team. John James 'Jack' Wetter was born in Newport on 29/12/1887. He played for Pill Harriers, Newport, Blaina, Crawshays and Wales.
