DAVID Richards became a cup winner with Newport last Sunday, now his sister Catherine intends to get in on the act.

David won the man of the match award after helping the Black and Ambers edge out Aberavon in thrilling Premiership Cup final at Principality Stadium.

The full-back, fresh from featuring for the Dragons against Gloucester and the Scarlets, played a key role in the triumph in the capital when providing the final pass for captain Matt O’Brien’s match-winning score.

“We didn’t make it easy, that’s for sure, and it was a tough two weeks leading into the game and lacking momentum,” said 22-year-old Richards after the 25-21 success.

“But we got the job done and I am a happy boy! We stuck with it and managed to see it out in a tight one.”

The 21-year-old has played for Crawshay’s, represented Wales at the Touch Rugby World Cup and was in the Welsh development squad before the coronavirus pandemic.

The Richards siblings grew up in Abu Dhabi where they started playing rugby and both went to Monmouth School.
