Carys Phillips is a hooker for the Wales national team and she also plays for Bristol and the Ospreys.
The daughter of former Wales international Rowland Phillips graduated from Cardiff Metropolitan University.
She won her first international cap against Ireland in the Six Nations in 2013 and has captained her country for almost two years, amassing over 40 caps in the process.
With a rugby playing such a strong role in the Phillips family, Carys knows ther importance of passing down the values and traditions to the next generation of players.
The front-row forward said she was delighted to become a part of the didi family because the classes provide a solid foundation for tomorrow’s sporting stars.
“didi rugby will be brilliant for women’s rugby because it ensures a bright future by getting girls to join in and begin playing a fantastic sport,” she said.
“The idea of didi rugby is important because it focuses on young children. It encourages them to pick up a ball and learn some core skills while having fun at the same time.”
Carys is one of a number of high-profile sports women who have become ambassadors of didi rugby to support the Swansea franchise, which has been thriving under the leadership of Robyn Lock.
MBE Non Evans was at the Swansea opening while women’s internationals: Alecs Donovan, Amy Evans and Siwan Lillicrap are adding their energy and experience too.
