My Set of Six: with Swinton captain Rhodri Lloyd featuring Principality Stadium & Wigan debut

Josh McAllister

Wales international and Swinton captain Rhodri Lloyd is our latest guest on My Set of Six.

Favourite away ground?

Principality Stadium, Cardiff. I played there against Italy in 2013 in the Rugby League World Cup. A boyhood dream fulfilled.

Favourite player?

Neil Jenkins was when I was younger, a Pontypridd RFC great. Nowadays, I’d probably go with Viliame Kikau, the Penrith back-rower. He’s an absolute steam train.

Favourite memory?

I have a few brilliant memories. My Wigan debut at Leeds, the 2015 play-off final for Swinton, or the two World Cups, but number one is the 2015 European Championship win for Wales. That’s my favourite memory.

Worst memory?

My worst memory is playing Castleford for Wigan. It was torrential rain and I dropped about three balls in the first half. I had a stinker.

Best match I’ve seen?

2015 NRL Grand Final was insane!

One wish for the future of rugby league?

My wish for British rugby league is to establish a strong leadership team to take the game forward. Someone who knows the game and has many contacts to get the game equal with the NRL on a marketing and financial side.
