Glyn Hughes Joins HKFC Rugby


Glyn Hughes Joins HKFC Rugby

">

">HKFC Rugby is pleased to annouce the signing of Glyn Hughes, former London Welsh, Northamton Saints, Wasps and Moseley player.

The fly half joined London Welsh in the English Championship, the second tier of professional rugby from Moseley in 2016 having racked up 116 points in the Championship for the Birmingham club in 2015/16. 

Glyn came through the Northampton Saints Academy and made one first-team appearance in the LV= Cup against London Irish, kicking one conversion. He spent the second half of the 2011/12 campaign on a dual registration at Moseley, and impressed former Ireland interntional Kevin Maggs enough to earn a full-time one-year deal. 

After one season at Billesley Common, he made the switch to Leeds Carnegie for the 2012/13 season. 

Glyn ended an impressive his first season at Headingley as the team's top points scorer with 244 points in 25 games and helping them reach the play-off semi-finals only to lose out to London Welsh. Hughes was man of the match in Leeds 38-31 win in the 1st leg of the semi-final, racking up seven penalties and two conversions in a 100% kicking performance. 

He played just three games for Leeds in 2014/15 before then moving to Wasps as part of a player exchange agreement deal which saw Jonah Holmes move in the other direction to Leeds. 

He re-joined Moseley in 2015 and, in total, scored 293 points in 56 appearances in his time in the Red and Black.

HKFC Rugby Director of Rugby, Will Thomas commented, ‘When London Welsh unfortunately went into liquidation in January 2017, Glyn was left out of work and had time to reflect on his next career move.  The London Welsh Director of Rugby, Steve Lewis who I used to work with at the WRU contacted me to see if we could help out a few of the players who were looking to transition out of professional rugby and he was aware of the excellent job HKFC had done for Tom Isaacs and Jevon Groves.’

‘Glyn stuck out more than the other players as he had a skill set we desperately needed as he’s a prolific goal kicker, kicks well out of hand and can manage the game really well.  He also had started a distance learning degree and had got some decent work experience together alongside his professional rugby commitments.  Thankfully, the HKFC rugby network duly delivered and Glyn is now a junior broker at ICAP and I’d like to formally thank former HKFC Scorpions player Ashley Walsh who helped us get the job for Glyn.’

‘From a rugby perspective Glyn can also play centre and full back so will bring much needed competition to the squad.  He has a kicking game that will probably be unrivalled in the Premiership in Hong Kong and it’s something we’ve lacked consistency in, the past two seasons.  He will definitely be able to turn tight games into a victory for us which we’d have previously narrowly lost before.’


Glyn commented on his move to HKFC, ‘I’m really thankful to HKFC Rugby for helping me with my transition, I’ve got an excellent career opportunity which I probably wouldn’t have got with any other rugby club in the world and I’m really looking forward to combining it with rugby and helping the club win some trophies.  It’s been a whirlwind few months completing some professional exams with work and acclimatising to Hong Kong life but it’s been made all the more easier by the help of everybody at HKFC.’

There is an excellent article in the English Rugby Players Association, mainly written by Glyn regarding the tough challenges when transitioning out of professional rugby.  It can be viewed here:

Glyn has been in Hong Kong for a few months already and has settled well into his job in ICAP and into HK and HKFC life.
