Ricky loves sport, he has lived and breathed Rugby since he was a boy living in South Wales, from playing professionally for Pro 14 team Llanelli Scarlets to 5years in playing in France, including in the Top14 at Union Bordeaux- Bègles. He also speaks Welsh, Italian and French and a Swansea type of English! Who said all the brains were in the Front Row!

Ricky is starting his journey as a rugby referee this season and hopes to rediscover a top level playing field again. He feels not enough ex front row forwards take up the whistle and can really understand the dark arts of scrummaging. We hope he keeps up with play better than he did in his playing days!!
