Dillon Lewis came through the Pontypridd ranks before being called up by the Cardiff academy, after winning international age grade honours.
He made his senior debut against Wasps in the Anglo Welsh Cup, before appearing in the Guinness PRO14 for the first time the following season, as a replacement in the trip to Munster.
An unfortunate luck with injuries meant the promising youngster had to bide his time at Wales’ Capital Region, but Lewis was included for Wales’ summer tour in 2017.
The prop made his Test debut against Tonga, and quickly established himself to challenge the likes of Tomas Francis and Samson Lee for the number three jersey.
Lewis went onto win his first 12 games in a red jersey, and featured in all of Wales' matches in the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.
The prop also surpassed 50 appearances for his home club at Judgement Day 2019.
