Velindre Cancer Trust dinner at Parc Y Scarlets

charity

Very proud to have shared the stage with the Worlds best referee Nigel Owens at PYS last week.

The event was organised by Trimsaran RFC and was well attended on a beautiful evening where they raised over £3000 for this remarkable charity, whose president is their favourite son Johnathan Jiffy Davies…….. I met his Mam, what a lovely lady.

 

 

Perfect face for radio……

Last seasons Friday night radio show on BBC Radio Wales was great fun & I am delighted to say that after a summer of fun following Glamorgan in the T20 we’ll be back at the end of August in a new time slot on a Thursday evening.

I’m really excited about this because it means we are no longer clashing with the live game on the Friday night. This means that my regular guests like Gareth llewellyn, Sean Holley, Martin Williams et al can really get stuck in to the issues of the week……. and lets face it, this is Welsh Rugby, there are always plenty of issues.

Also my co presenter (gimp) Paul Williams (Wales’ seventh best dressed man 2013) can keep us up to date with all the matters of the egg from around the world.

 

First show is on the 28th August….. Don’t miss it!!

BBC Radio Wales

As everyone that know me will be aware that I have a passion for Radio, which I am fortunate to exercise on the BBC Radio Wales Scrum V show. This week we presented the show live at the Mochyn Dy in Sofia Gardens.

filling two hours of live air time is easy when you are sat with Gwyn Jones, Gareth Charles, & Gareth Davies. Topic of discussion was Wales Autumn series, predictions of a narrow defeat for Wales I made, and unfortunately they delivered.

Catch me on my radio show every Friday from 7 till 9pm.

I had the privilege yesterday to be the guest speaker supporting the legend that is All Blacks Captain Wayne Shelford. The location was a packed house in Tumble RFC. After telling some of my stories & enjoying a few of his tales we moved onto the important bit….The auction. We were raising money for the future of the club in the hope that it will nurture it up coming talent.

 

Worthington Wednesday

LIBERTY-7

A Molsen Coors Worthington Wednesday is my latest endevaour Hosted by Pencoed RFC guests tucked into a feast of hot chicken curry & half & half. Spot on it was too.
I shared the spotlight in a Q&A panel with former RBS 6 Nations 2012 player of the tournament & Lions player Dan Lydiate, oh and the World’s best referee Nigel Owens.
A special guest experience was made by my dad telling the tale of the ‘The Battle Of The Springs’ in South Africa whereupon he became the only British Lion to be sent off. I am now happy to report that his temper has mellowed considerably over the years.
The audience asked some great questions, it was a truly fantastic evening.
