Arwel Robson

21st Feb 1997 1.80m/83kg Fly Half

Caerphilly-born, Arwel is a former Wales under 18s and under 20s player who made 24 appearances for the Dragons and scored 92 points, which would likely have been considerably more but for suffering a hamstring injury early in 2019/20.

Back to fitness, however, he did later have a short loan spell with Jersey Reds. Educated at Lewis School Pengam and the University of South Wales, Arwel played his junior and youth rugby at Nelson RFC and Penallta RFC, and was a member of the latter’s youth team that won the Welsh Youth Cup in 2014. He was also a try-scorer in the final played at the Millennium Stadium.

Arwel, who considers his strengths to be his running and kicking game, was a big admirer of Dan Carter when growing up, whilst having played alongside Gavin Henson at the Dragons – described as being helpful and a really nice bloke – seemed surreal. The support of his parents has also always been appreciated, as it had been from Gareth Richards who was his PE teacher at school.

He was been involved in the Dragons set-up for several seasons and played for the Dragons Development side in the British & Irish Cup against the Reds in 2015/16, before going on to represent the region in the PRO14 and European Challenge Cup.

Arwel was called into the Wales under-18s squad for his first international cap in France in March 2015. In January 2017, he made the Wales U20 squad that took part at the 2017 U20 Six Nations.

In January 2020, Robson joined Jersey Reds on loan after 22 appearances for the Dragons. As of April 2020 he has made 23 appearances for the Dragons, scoring 92 points.

In April 2021, he signed a loan deal with Cornish Pirates. In May, the Pirates confirmed that fly-half Arwel Robson has signed an initial one-year contract that well see him play for the club in the 2021/22 season.

As of 19 May, he has impressed in not only making three appearances but also accumulating 28 points – made up of one try, seven conversions and three penalties.
