Leigh was central to the British & Irish Lions’ triumphant tour of Australia in 2013, scoring 49 of the team’s 79 points across the three Tests.

He has been similarly important for Wales, playing in all 10 fixtures as the nation secured back to back championship wins in 2012 and 2013, scoring 66 points and 74 points respectively, overtaking Shane Williams to go fifth on the all time points scorers list.

His debut came in November 2008 against the Springboks after impressing for Wales U20 in the inaugural Junior World Championship.
