Early life and rugby career
Butler was born on 8 May 1957. He was educated at Monmouth School and Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. Butler played as a number eight and was at Cambridge for Blues in 1976, 1977 and 1978, and captained Wales on six occasions. He captained Pontypool RFC side between 1982 and 1985, in succession to Jeff Squire. He was chosen for the Barbarians and the British Lions.
Journalist and broadcaster
After retiring from playing the game, Butler wrote a weekly column in the Rugby Union section of The Observer Sport since 1991 and also wrote for The Guardian, as well as commentating for the BBC with Brian Moore, the former England hooker. He received some attention when it became public knowledge that Austin Healey's newspaper column had been written by Butler whilst Healey was on tour with the British and Irish Lions Rugby squad in Australia in 2001.
Before commentating on a match, Butler prepared for several hours, absorbing as much information as he could, but taking few notes, and likened it to cramming for an examination. He described writing a match report, often under time pressure, as telling a story which does not necessarily have to follow the timeline of the match so long as it is entertaining and complete.
In 2008 Butler provided commentary for archery at the Beijing Olympics.
Butler presented the history series: Wales and the History of the World (BBC1 Wales), Hidden Histories (BBC2), Welsh Towns at War (BBC1) in 2014 and two series of Welsh Towns (BBC2 Wales) in 2015. He was on the commentating team for the Invictus Games. He also worked for the associated football assignments including a special interview with Eric Cantona for FA Cup Final edition of Grandstand in 1994.
Writing, charity work and politics
Butler published two rugby-based novels. He was also an ambassador for Prostate Cymru, a Welsh organisation to raise prostate cancer awareness.
Butler was a supporter of Welsh independence.
Personal life and death
Butler died in his sleep whilst visiting Cusco, Peru for a charity trek, on 15 September 2022, at the age of 65.
