Starting off in rugby union, he was part of the Scarlets development system whilst playing in North Wales. Choosing to switch to Rugby League as a teenager, he didn't look back and quickly became both Wales' record try scorer and joint record cap holder. He has played in two World Cups for Wales, in 2013 and 2017 and also in the 2019 World Cup 9s in Australia. He was also part of the Wales men's side that won the 2009, 2010 and 2015 European Championship, plus played in the 2011 Four Nations. Up until 2020, he had scored three hat-tricks of tries in Welsh colours - two of them against Scotland for the men's side, and one in the U19s European Championship in 2008 against the Czech Republic - he scored seven tries in three games in that tournament when Wales won the title and he made his full international debut for Wales later that year. His most successful club spell was at London Broncos where he scored 100 tries in 152 appearances, as he helped them to promotion to Super League. Another good season in 2021 could see him reach 100 career Super League appearances.
Also played in the Danny Jones Memorial Match - Keighley Cougars v Wales on 25/10/2015 (scored two tries). Click here for details on this game.
