About
Me

A son of the Llynfi Valley, Rhydian Jenkins’ playing career began at Tondu RFC before moving to Carmarthen Quins at youth level and progressing to the club’s senior squad in 2015, whilst studying at Cardiff University.

Having represented both the Ospreys and Scarlets at regional age-grade levels, Rhydian then made a brief homecoming with Maesteg Quins before stepping up to Premiership level with Cross Keys in 2018.

Having trained and played as a trialist with Pontypridd in the summer of 2019 Rhydian was drafted into the club’s senior squad to compete for the hooker’s berth.

Rhydian Jenkins is a qualified teacher and, in contrast to his rugged rugby profile, is a prominent operatic tenor, having won numerous awards at the Urdd, National and Llangollen Eisteddfod, and in 2019 nominated as a member of the Gorsedd.
