Standing over 6ft tall and weighing nearly 17st, like many others of his generation he was converted from the second row, where he played in 1957 when Cardiff beat the Wallabies, to become a top-class scrummager. Educated at Llandovery College, Kingsley was a wholesale fruit merchant and one of his hobbies was golf. Kingsley played 190 games for the club between 1955 and 1964,scoring eight tries.
