Ben had a chequered rugby career with service including appearances for Neath, Swansea, Tonmawr, Tata and Bonymaen, playing in the second row and at No 8.

His ball-handling skills have always been good and he won his first Wales under-18 cap against New Zealand at Neath in 2002, representing Cwmavon High School. He can claim that on his Aberavon debut he was the nearest man to Ian Moore for that famous try.
