Rank #2: LW 36: Dylan Pugh

Our guest this week is Dylan Pugh. Dylan came to London Welsh from Neath RFC after a couple of successful years being coached by Lyn Jones; playing with many who went on to represent Wales and the Lions with distinction.  His pathway to Neath wasn't typical as he was part of the Bath academy when Bath were in the pomp, but only played a couple of matches at senior level before he was snapped up by Neath.  He sees London Welsh as his club as he was with us for over 6 years, playing under Adrian Davies for most of it and really enjoyed the environment created by our esteemed Head Coach.  Dylan left to forge a career in Media and is now an entrepreneur who launched his own Podcasting business in this pandemic and is an Ambassador for Global Welsh.  Dylan made a comeback for London Welsh in 2017 when Sonny and Cai bumped into him and convinced him out of retirement to give it another go.

Our guest this week, is Club Captain Chris Lilly.  Before Joining Welsh, Chris had a rich rugby background, playing through the various Leinster age groups - A Schools, u18 etc. and got a rugby scholarship to UCD (University College Dublin). Chris then earned a place in the Leinster sub Academy for 2 years and started for the Leinster u20s during their winning interprovincial campaign. To top all of this Chris was called up to u20 Irish squad but was unfortunately not successful in gaining a place in the 6Nations/Junior Word Cup.  On leaving Ireland we had the great fortune as a club that Chris decided to join our ranks to play his rugby, his fantastic debut at London Welsh in 2018 meant he was given the Coaches Player of the Year award for his role as a key player in the winning squad and was then given the task of Captaining the club for the 2019/20 season.

Rank #4: LW 34: Will Taylor

This weeks' guest is Will Taylor, Strength and Conditioning Coach at London Welsh RFC.  Will arrived at London Welsh in 2017 after Sonny Parker had got in touch with him to be part of the Coaching group with Cai and him, to take the club on a journey back up the leagues.  Will was working in a restaurant, but this moment was pivotal to Will's life as this provided the opportunity for him to open up his own business, which is the gym, Barch Richmond in the Summer of 2018.  Pre London Welsh, Will had played for two Welsh regions, Ospreys and Scarlets, as well as a host of local cubs like, Dunvant, Carmarthern and Aberavon and had represented Wales at two Junior World Cups.  He would say his most successful time as a player was when he first arrived at Wasps and had a consistent run of games in the Premiership and really enjoyed his time up in London.

Our guest this week, is Honorary Vice President Seb Scotney.  Seb has been volunteering at the club for over 30 years and has inspired hundreds of players who have been coached by him in our Little Wizards (under 6's).  A language graduate from Oxford University, who went on to have a successful career in the City, but found his Sunday home as he lived around the corner from Old Deer Park.  A passion for Music led him to create his own Jazz  newsletter and he would play his Saxaphone at the Minis Christmas Party.  I'm not sure many clubs the length and breadth of Great Britain would have a volunteer like Seb ; who has looked after our youngest cohort for 27 years and encourages so many parents to become Volunteers and to love being part of our Community.
