The news that Wales will be taking on both Scotland and Georgia at Parc y Scarlets this autumn has brought back memories of the last time they played an international match in Llanelli.

That was in November 1998 when Graham Henry’s team took on Argentina at the old Stradey Park.

Wales, captained by Rob Howley, ran out winners 43-30, with Colin Charvis crossing twice, while Dafydd James and Mark Taylor also touched down on a night Neil Jenkins kicked 23 points.

So, what are the members of that Welsh team doing today? Where are they now? Find out here.

15. Shane Howarth

These days, you will find Howarth running a supermarket in the Auckland suburb of Mangere Bridge.

His 19-cap Wales career came to an abrupt end in 2000 when he found himself at the centre of the Grannygate scandal.

After finishing playing in 2003, he headed back to New Zealand and moved into coaching with Auckland and the Blues, while he also had spells with the Pacific Islanders, Worcester and then out in Japan with Honda Heat.

14. Gareth Thomas

The former postman from Pencoed went on to win 100 Wales caps and skipper both his country and the Lions, scoring 41 Test tries in all.

Since finishing playing, he has become an even bigger name, appearing on shows such as Celebrity Big Brother, Dancing on Ice and The Jump, as well as fronting programmes of his own and working as a TV rugby analyst.

13. Mark Taylor

A qualified accountant, Taylor has worked in that profession since finishing his playing career in 2005 with 52 Wales cap to his name, having turned out for Pontypool, Swansea, the Scarlets, Sale and the Ospreys.

He has also served as a team manager for Wales at different age group levels, as well as for the Scarlets, while he was on the WRU Council for a spell until earlier this year.

12. Scott Gibbs

Now 49, Gibbs has been out in America, attending the Wharton Business School in Philadelphia, having previously lived in South Africa and Verona in Italy.

9. Rob Howley

The former Wales and Lions scrum-half has just this week been announced as Canada’s assistant coach.

That marks his return to rugby following the nine month ban he served for breaching betting regulations.

1. Andrew Lewis

Known throughout the game as Alp due to his Christian names, he spent the majority of his career at looshead prop, but then switched to hooker at the instigation of Wales coach Graham Henry.

A one-club man at Cardiff, he went on to win 29 caps in all, his last appearance coming in 2002. Outside of rugby, he has worked in wealth management.

2. Jonathan Humphreys

The Cardiff hooker slipped out of the Wales reckoning the following season, but was recalled after a four break in 2003 to captain Steve Hansen’s team. Ended up with 35 caps, 19 of them as skipper.

After retiring from playing, he had spells working with the packs at the Ospreys, Scotland and Glasgow. He is now part of Wayne Pivac’s Wales management team as forwards coach.

After his rugby career ended, he went on to be a primary school teacher.

4. Craig Quinnell

The barnstorming former second row is heavily involved with the family business Aquatreat, of which his father Derek is managing director and where brother Gavin also works.

Having won 32 Wales caps, he called it a day at 30 due to a neck injury, following spells with Llanelli, Richmond, Cardiff, Saracens and Worcester. He remains a huge character.

5. Chris Wyatt

The “One Man Riot” now lives in Pertuis, near the city of Aix-en-Provence, in France, with his job being transporting vehicles back and fore to the UK.

Having earned 38 caps for Wales, he headed across the channel to join Bourgoin in 2007 after spells at Newport, Neath, the Scarlets and Munster.

6. Colin Charvis

The back rower scored two tries on that Stradey Park night against Argentina, crossing for 22 in all during his 94-cap Wales career, which featured 22 games as captain.

After retiring from playing, he was part of the coaching set-up at the Dragons for a period, while he now runs a carpet and general flooring business in Swansea and also sits on the WRU council.

7. Martyn Williams

Like Jenkins and Humphreys, the 100-times capped ex-flanker is now part of the Wales management team.

He took over from the long-serving Alan Phillips as team manager last year, having worked extensively within the media since retiring in 2012, as well as being involved in the financial services sector.

8. Scott Quinnell
