We caught up with him and chatted about rugby and his interest in the Law.
Tell Us a bit about you?
I am 23 years old, grew up in Solihull in the West Midlands and came to the Dragons back in 2016 having played for the Welsh Exiles due to my father’s heritage. During my career I have played for Wales U’18’s, U20’s and 7s. I have made 30 appearances for the Dragons so far. This summer, I also completed my Law Degree from Cardiff University.
What got you into Rugby?
My Dad! My 1st rugby memory is when he took me to Beaconsfield RFC aged about 5, however I refused to play and started crying! Until I was about 9 years old all I cared about was football but then, I gradually started playing rugby due to my dad’s persistence but also the fact all my friends had started playing.
What made you want to study law?
I never had a specific moment where I knew I wanted to study law, but it has been something that is intrigued me for as long as I can remember. Whether that be watching every crime documentary Netflix has to offer or more recently being interested in the specific workings of contract negotiations!
What aspects of Law are you enjoying?
During my degree I really enjoyed studying Criminal Law, Media Law and Sports Law. Sports Law specifically is an area that massively intrigues me moving forwards as a potential second career because it combines my two biggest interests, sports, and the law.
What would be your Dream Job?
Professional Rugby! It’s amazing that a hobby of mine growing up is now my job but it doesn’t last forever, so afterwards, I would love to be either a Sports Agent or work as a Sports Lawyer for a large organisation such as the WRU or Liverpool FC! In other sports I would love to be a professional golfer playing throughout the world.
Watch the Dragons take on Edinburgh tomorrow at 19.35pm
