When Ffion Lewis played against England on Friday 25 June 2021, she became the 100th Wales rugby codebreaker - all starting from Dai Tarw Jones in the world's first rugby league international between two countries in 1908, and along with way featuring players like Lewis Jones, Dai Watkins, Jonathan Davies and Gareth Thomas - good company indeed.
Ffion has been playing rugby all her life, having started at her local club at just six-years-old. An experienced 7s player, she represented Wales on that circuit, helping her side qualify for the 2018 Commonwealth Games through performances in the Rugby Europe 7s 2017 series. She captained the Welsh University 7s side, before going onto the 15-a-side game with Scarlets before making her Wales debut in 2018. She went onto win 14 caps for Wales rugby union, also playing 7s for Wales and club wise, has turned out for Worcester Warriors, Gloucester-Hartpury and Exeter Chiefs in the Premier XVs. In 2021, she started playing rugby league and attended Welsh trials and signed for Rhondda Outlaws and the new Super League South side Cardiff Demons, scoring the winning try for the Demons with ten seconds to go in their Grand Final win.
Outside of rugby, she completed a sport and exercise science degree at Cardiff Metropolitan University and a PGCE as a PE and Welsh teacher.
