Profile

Newport-born Adam is a graduate of the Dragons academy and is an experienced club player, making 27 appearances and 7 tries for Bedwas before moving to Rodney Parade.

Adam is an elusive centre but also has great pace, lending him to cover the wing position as well. He has represented Wales at Under 16, 18 and 20 level.

Despite being sidelined with an elbow injury for much of the 2009/10 season, Adam returned to the pitch in the New Year for the Dragons, scoring two tries in the win over Sale.

A qualified pilot, Adam plans to become a commercial pilot after his playing career.

Adam went on to be one of the stories of the 2010/11 season. Having expected to pick up a couple of appearances, injury problems early in the season gave him the opportunity to prove himself and he became a regular in the Dragons side, going on to pick up the South Wales Argus Player of the Year Award.

Adam appeared 30 times for the Dragons that season, including 27 starts. His first Dragons try came in his first appearance of the 2010/2011 season when he came off the bench in the away loss to Cardiff Blues. He went on to score 10 tries that season and also take on the back-up kicking duties in a number of games, slotting 3 conversions.

Adam didn’t quite match his 56 point hall of the previous season in 2011/2012 but was once again an integral part of the Dragons matchday squad. Adam appeared 23 times split between the wing and centre positions, whilst also slotting in to acting fly half on a couple of occasions towards the end of the season. His performances were such that he was being touted by pundits as a potential Wales squad member for the summer tour to Australia. Unfortunately Adam was overlooked but will no doubt be pressing his claims again in 2012/2013.
