An extract from the ceremony to invest a new member to the Order of Ovates (green robes) by the Archdruid Meirion at the Llanelli and District National Eisteddfod in 2000. Here Delme Thomas, former Llanelli, Wales and Lions rubgy player is being accepted as an honorary member.

'Venerable Archdruid, I present to you Mr Delme Thomas, Carmarthen - a native of the village of Bancyfelin near Carmarthen who became one of Wales' most famous rugby players in the sixties and seventies. He was chosen to captain Llanelli in the club's centenary year, 1972-73 and this is when, under his captaincy, and with Carwyn as coach , Llanelli beat the All Blacks nine points to three... It was not surprising that Delme was chosen to captain Wales during the same year. He is remembered as one of Wales's best second row forwards; to be called in Gorsedd: Delme Bancyfelin'
