Personal Overview

As a tall, strong second row, I feel my strengths are in ball carrying, support at the breakdown and dominance in the line out. Driven by a high work ethic and an aggressive nature on the pitch, I bring added intensity to a team as well as an added mobility in the Second row to power into the contact area or to move the ball when needed.

I have played for Longton rugby club from a Junior level, coming through the 3rd and 2nd XV with brief appearances in the first team. However, in 2012, after a full pre - season, I broke through into the First XV playing in every game of the season in the English National 3 League. The following season, I played the first few games before returning to Cardiff University where I cemented my place in the First XV, playing in the Premier A South University league and other games played included the touring Sydney University Rugby side and playing the entirety of the Welsh Varsity Game against Swansea University at the Millenium Stadium.
The video footage shown is of the Welsh Varsity Match where I am playing in red and have number 4 on with a black scrum hat. Key times of the video for myself are: Ball Carrying (9.00, 46.40, 1.06.30, 1.15.05, 1.43.20) and Support play (8.26, 22.30, 25.00, 44.07, 1.05.30, 1.07.15, 1.18.18, 1.27.20)
