Phil Bennett Rugby: Death Cause – Legend Died Age 73, A Look Into His Wife and Family

Phil Bennett, a former Welsh international Rugby player has died at the age of 73. “This morning, I received terrible news from West Wales about the death of Bennett, a man I was fortunate to have met a few times.”

“A Welsh/Lions legend and a kind person. RIP, Benny,” said Lee Hughes.

“I was devastated to learn about Phil Bennett’s death. One of the finest players of his generation and, more importantly, an incredible human being.”

Probably the finest thing I’ve ever done was interview him on @BBCScrumv Rip about Rugby and his life with @davidflatman, said Tom Shanklin on Twitter.

Phil Bennett Rugby Death Rumour Illness and Cause

David made a tweet that Phil is not dead, however, he is seriously ill and has asked to respect the privacy of the family.

Similarly, Phil’s daughter-in-law tweeted a debunking of the hoax and stated, “PHIL BENNETT has NOT died. Therefore, if individuals could please delete their posts claiming he has as soon as they posted them.”

“The family would be incredibly grateful!!! What is the problem with individuals circulating such terrible rumors?”

Bennett is a former Welsh rugby union player who is widely regarded as one of the country’s best players of all time. Bennett is currently a famous rugby speaker because of his great expertise and charming demeanor.

He delivers interesting talks and is an excellent complement to a variety of events and occasions. With one rugby author reportedly saying, “Phil was a rugby player whose brilliance defied categorization,” it’s easy to understand why this renowned Welshman is revered across the world.

Bennett, a natural fly-half, was consistently on the scoreboard for club and country, scoring an incredible 166 points in his 29 games for Wales.

Bennett, who began his domestic career at Felinfoel RFC, quickly became a fan favorite. During his career, he played for three different clubs, starting with Felinfoel and progressing to Llanelli RFC and Barbarian F.C.

In 1969, he made his international debut for Wales against France, becoming the first Welsh substitute in international rugby history.

Bennett was a member of the record-breaking British and Irish Lions squad in 1974. Bennett earned the most points in the series and was a star performer throughout as the squad thrashed South Africa 3-0 in a whitewash series.

Bennett resigned from rugby in 1978 after a tremendously successful local and international career; he was later inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame. Bennett and his teammates were honored at the Welsh Sports Hall of Fame in 2007.
