Favourite Sporting moment from 2023?

Smashing Australia 40-6 in the Rugby World Cup (even better because I got to see it live!).


Most of my hobbies revolve around sport. I’m at my happiest lying on a sofa watching pretty much any sport that’s on the telly. When the weather isn’t too bad – I’ll occasionally venture out to one of the stadiums in Cardiff to watch some football or rugby.


I used to play rugby in my younger days. Career highlights include being Pwllheli RFC u’12s Most Improved Player 2003. More recently I have gotten slightly obsessed with cycling and triathlon, which is great for keeping fit, especially in Wales where it’s impossible to cycle more than 5 miles without climbing a hill.

Favourite thing about Wales?

Hard to pick one – but the scenery is spectacular. You’re never too far away from a stunning mountain hike or a beach/coastline.
