Andy Powell was born in Brecon in 1981 and attended Llandovery College playing for both Brecon and Llandovery. In 1999 he joined Newport RFC for four seasons before joining Leicester, returning to Wales, to play for the Llanelli Scarlets, via French club AS Beziers Herault. A season with Cardiff Blues (including two appearances with Cardiff) was followed by Wasps and Sale before he moved to Rugby League with Wigan
And then returning to South Wales to play League for South Wales Scorpions and Union with Newport Gwent Dragons. His nomadic career finally ended at Merthyr in the Welsh Premiership. After his retirement from playing he took up coaching of his home town team in Brecon.
Andy Powell represented Wales U19s, Wales U21s, Wales 'A' and the Welsh 7s side. His first senior cap for Wales came against South Africa on the 8th November 2008 when he was Man of the Match and in 2009 he was named as a member of the British and Irish Lions tour to South Africa. Sadly his international career ended in disgrace when he took a golf buggy from the Vale of Glamorgan resort where the team were staying and taking an early morning drive along the M4 to get some food from the nearby motorway services.
