Our story

‘One Team – One Race, Honouring the Cardiff Bay Rugby Codebreakers’

Some of the country’s greatest sporting heroes are to be immortalised in a permanent artwork designed to ensure their stories - and the story of the proud and vibrant multi-cultural community which helped shape them - are never forgotten.

‘One Team – One Race, Honouring the Cardiff Bay Rugby Codebreakers’ was launched on Sporting Heritage Day, 2020 (Wednesday, Sept 30). We want to raise money to create three statues chosen from 13 sports stars who made a telling contribution playing in Rugby League over the past 120 years.

All thirteen nominees grew up within a three-mile radius of Cardiff Bay. Many battled prejudice and racism before leaving Wales to find fame as Rugby League superstars in the North of England.

Included among the 13 Rugby Codebreakers, who all hail from the Cardiff Bay area and surrounding neighbourhoods are:

3 World Cup winners

9 Great Britain internationals

12 Welsh internationals

3 Rugby League Hall of Famers

4 members of the Welsh Sports Hall of Fame Roll of Honour

7 players who won 17 Challenge Cup finals

The project was inspired by calls from the Butetown and wider Cardiff Bay communities for a fitting tribute to the players who did so much to improve race relations across Britain.
