Profile

James Benjamin is one of the Dragons homegrown talents having progressed through the academy and age grade sides. He has also made appearances for Premiership sides Cross Keys and Bedwas in the back row as Number 8 and Flanker.

The back row turned heads during his time in the Premiership as he was called into the Wales U20s squad and made his International debut during a win against France in October 2013.

Benjamin made his debut for the Dragons as flanker against London Wasps in 2013. He was part of the winning side for that game as the Welsh Region won 20-8 at Rodney Parade.

Benjamin has also stepped into the 7s scene as the Welsh Region's played in their first Premiership Rugby 7s Tournament in 2015, in which the Dragons and Blues both got through to the finals at the Stoop. He was also called into the Wales Sevens team for the Commonwealth Games in 2018.
