Under Bob Evans' leadership in 1951-52, Newport set a post war scoring record of 584pts. In spite of some inconsistent play Newport were again one of the most attractive teams in the country. Cardiff, having failed to score a single try against Newport the previous season, beat Newport 4 times and took Newport's 21 month ground record.
Sadly Bob Evans's career ended with injury after just the 10th game and Roy Burnett took over as captain missing just one game. Of the forwards newcomer Ian Ford, Peter Davies and front row Sterry, Lyn Davies and Hirst stood out.
Only Cardiff, Cambridge University, Neath and the touring Springboks (3 v 6) managed victories over Newport.
John Lane scored 32 tries to become second overall to Arthur Gould who set his record of 37 in 1892-93. Malcolm Thomas was outstanding at centre and helped Wales to the Triple Crown. Ben Edwards kicked 19p and 31c.
