Profile

Jevon Groves' early rugby career was with Cardiff Blues. He was a member of their Academy for three years and affiliated to the Cardiff club team in the Welsh Premiership, starting off in the backs but eventually moving to his favourite blindside flanker position.

While he was with the Wales Under-20s he got to know Rob Beale and Rob Appleyard, now the Dragon's director of rugby and defence coach, respectively, and Beale in particular encouraged him to join Cross Keys after he was released by Cardiff.

Groves has now been with Cross Keys for 3 years and has been gradually forcing his way into a more regular role with the Dragons.

Jevon made his Dragons debut in May 2010's loss at the Ospreys, coming on in the back row.  That was his only appearance of the 2009/2010 season, but he went on to make 3 further substitue appearances during 2010/2011 including a try scoring appearance in the Dragons LV= Cup Semi-Final at Kingsholm against Gloucester.

Jevon became more of a regular in the Dragons matchday squad in the 2011/2012 season and has helped Cross Keys to the semi-final of the British & Irish Cup Semi-Finals where they face Cornish Pirates at the beginnning of April.

He captained the Wales Sevens team to the Plate semi-finals during the 2010 Commonwealth Games and has also made international appearances for Wales in the Under-19s and Under-20s.
