Biography

Every pack needs a ‘dog’ and Lee is certainly one! He is a rugged forward who has settled splendidly with the Wizards and is a favourite of almost every supporter in the club as he gives 100% in evert game he plays in and has led the side on several occasions. His previous clubs have included Gilfach Goch (alongside his elder brother), Bedwas and Tonmawr (under Jason Hyatt), but he is now playing the best rugby of his career and is an essential in the Aberavon squad. He won the awards of Player of the Year and Players Player in 2018. A whole-hearted performer.
