Penygraig Rugby Football Club is a Welsh rugby union team based in Penygraig, Wales.

- Penygraig RFC

David "Dai" Evans (1872 – 29 January 1912) was a Welsh international rugby union forward who played club rugby for Penygraig and international rugby for Wales.

- Dai Evans

He is best known in Welsh rugby as the man who scored all seven points in 1933 against England to end the 'Twickenham bogey', and along with Jack Morley is seen as one of the greatest Welsh wings since the country's first Golden Era of rugby.

- Ronnie Boon

Penygraig were one of the first clubs to break this pattern managing to gain international caps for two of their players, David 'Dai' Evans in 1896 (4 caps) and Jack Rhapps (1 cap) in 1897.

- Penygraig RFC

Merthyr formed in 1876, Brecon in 1874, Penygraig in 1877; as the towns adopted the new sport they reflected the growth and expansion of a new industrial Wales.

Chosen for their strength and aggressive tackling, players such as Dai 'Tarw' Jones from Treherbert and Dai Evans from Penygraig added muscle to the front row.

Now dubbed the 'Twickenham bogey', it took the self confidence of Cardiff's Ronnie Boon to break the losing streak as he scored a try and a drop goal to take the match 7-3.
