Sixteen years ago, Ben began playing rugby for a local club in France. He was scouted and played for the feeder club for Stade Toulousain. He returned to England to begin a 3-year BSc Rugby Coaching and Performance course at the University of South Wales. He is also a Rugby Development Officer for the Cardiff Blues.

Proud Achievement

The continued coaching work he does in the community and being able to positively influence and affect the children that he coaches.

Ben’s Goal

“Rugby has been a very large part of my life and it is now more than ever, as it is my career. I hope that I am able to impact the lives of those I coach in a positive manner, just as rugby has done for me.”
