Adam Hughes

14th Feb 1990 1.83m/95kg Outside Centre

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. 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.

Hughes, who has a pilot’s licence, appeared nine times at the start of the 2013-14 season but fell out of favour with head coach Lyn Jones and was let go in February of that campaign when Bristol were in search of a back who could play centre or wing.

He signed a two and a half year contract with the side in 2016.

In April 2018, Hughes announced his retirement with immediate effect. Hughes suffered an injury against Ulster in September 2017 and retired following medical advice.

He made 119 appearances for the Region since his debut in 2010, scoring 22 tries and 124 points.
