Biography

He is “The best 2012 VI Nations Tournament player”, a title given to him after Wales Grand Slam in 2012. Just gone 25 years old, Dan Lydiate has already in possession a solid experience of high level rugby. Out of the Ebbw Vale RFC academy, he quickly reached the professional group in which at the age of 20, he played his first match with the Newport Dragons facing Connacht. The following season, in 2007-2008, he suffered of a terrible cervical injury against Perpignan. Escaping from very close a paralysis, he though managed to make his comeback after months and months of hard work to regain his best level and even get called for the first time of his career in the national squad to face Argentina in 2009. Tireless tackler and scraper, he will become a major asset for the “Ciel et Blanc” squad and it is with a none hidden enthusiasm that he joins the Hauts-de-Seine by saying “I'm Impatient of playing and being trained by game legends”.
