Former Wales international Howard Norris has died at the age of 80.

Norris, from Porth in the Rhondda, has the distinction of having played more Tests for the British and Irish Lions than he did for Wales.

He played in three Tests on the 1966 tour to Australia and New Zealand, having made two appearances for Wales against France in 1963 and 1966.

Norris made a club record 415 first-team appearances for Cardiff RFC, scoring 14 tries.

A statement on Cardiff Blues' website said: "Everyone at Cardiff Blues would like to pass on our condolences to his family and friends at this time."

Known as "Howie", Norris started his career with Tylorstown RFC before moving to Cardiff Arms Park in 1958.
