Legends Hospitality Wales vs Ireland 2015-20

Wales vs France (22nd February 2020) with Dafydd James

Dafydd James started his career in 1995 with Bridgend RFC and went on to represent Wales 51 times, scoring 11 tries.  In 2001, he also played in all 3 British and Irish Lions tests in Australia and scored 1 of the 4 tries in the opening series victory.

Most of his career was spent flying down the wing.  He was quick and his size (6ft 4 1/2 inches) meant that he often terrorized his opposite number.

After starting his rugby union career with Bridgend RFC, he went on to represent 8 different clubs.  He first made a name for himself at Sardis Road with Pontypridd, before moving west to Llanelli in 1999.  His longest club association was with the Welsh regional side, Llanelli Scarlets, where we made 72 appearances between 2005 and 2009, scoring .  points. His ended his rugby playing career with English premiership side Sale in 2010.

Since 2009, Dafydd has been a familiar face on TV as a rugby union sports pundit, but is also a motivational speaker, fitness coach and personal trainer.
