Profile

Andrew Coombs came up through the ranks of the Dragons’ Principality Premiership clubs to become a permanent Dragons squad member. He came through the Newport RFC youth teams to play for Pontypool at senior level. Andrew then rejoined Newport RFC, making his senior debut against Ebbw Vale in 2006 and going on to become captain in the 2008/2009 season.

Andrew has also represented Wales in the Under-18 team, scoring a try against England U18s and most recently been called up to feature for Wales in the 2013 Autumn Internationals.

In 2009/2010, Coombs made his breakthrough to regional rugby with the Dragons and was named Principality Premiership Player of the Year beating fellow nominee and now Wales International Centre, Scott Williams of Llanelli, to the prize.

He scored his first of 3 tries in the 2010/2011 season against Edinburgh at Rodney Parade and also went on to score against Glasgow Warriors and in the derby win over Cardiff Blues also at Rodney Parade.

Andrew has really stepped up in in previous years with the absence of our Wales World Cup Back Rows earning praise from various pundits and reporters. He spent 5 months of the 2011/2012 season on the sidelines with a pectoral injury sustained in the loss to the Scarlets in Llanelli at the end of November, making his comeback as a late call-up for the injured Luke Charteris is April 2012’s game against Treviso at Rodney Parade.
