A statement from Regional Rugby Wales on behalf of the Four Welsh Regions, the Scarlets, Ospreys, Newport Gwent Dragons and Cardiff Blues said: "Everyone across the Four Welsh Regions is united in wishing our respectful thanks to Gerald Davies for his dedicated work for the good of Welsh Rugby on the WRU Board for the best part of a decade."
As a true legend of our game in Wales, he continues to be a valued and respected ambassador for Welsh Rugby around the world and his influence and input will always be appreciated by all those connected with Welsh Rugby.
"As one of our Welsh rugby greats, Gerald has worked passionately for the whole game, with the integrity and honour you'd expect of a British and Irish Lion and our players, coaches, partners and executives wish him all the very best for the future."
Cardiff Blues tackle Munster in the Guinness PRO12 at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park on Saturday, November 1 (kick-off 5.15pm) - and it will be 'A Day to Remember' as we pay tribute to all the Armed Forces and our respects ahead of Remembrance Sunday!
Leaders of Rugby honoured the memory of former Scarlets and Regional Rugby Chief Executive Gallacher last night after it was announced he had been awarded the Outstanding Contribution to Rugby at Rugby Expo Awards.
