Profile

A crowd favourite, Richard’s try scoring ability, pace and vision has not just earned him popularity not just with the crowd but with teammates and coaching staff. His awareness and skills has made him a regular in Dragons team for the past few seasons and his ability to score has helped the Dragons to success a number of times.

Merthyr-born Richard played his junior days in near by village Nelson, but his talent was soon spotted and was picked up by Pontypridd academy in 2001. It didn’t take him long to catch the eye of the senior coaches and was soon moved up to the Welsh Premiership side. Richards great promise was then supported when he was called up to play for the, now disbanded Celtic Warriors. In 2005 he then signed for the Dragons where his career blossomed. In the 2008/2009 season he scored 10 tries for the Dragons and helped them win a lot of crucial games.

If Richard can maintain his great form he will continue to be a vital part of the Dragons set-up and with him scoring 10 tries in last season (2008/2009) his form has never been better.
