Cardiff blues prop John Yapp made his international debut as a replacement against England at the Millennium Stadium in 2005. He made four further replacement appearances as Wales secured the Grand Slam.

Yapp had first appeared on the radar as a bullish 18-year-old for Cardiff RFC, making 17 appearances for the side in 2002.
Following the 2005 Six Nations he made appearances on Wales' summer tour to North America and autumn international against Fiji.

He won a further cap as a replacement against Argentina in Puerto Madryn in 2006, but then disappeared from the international stage until the 2008 autumn internationals, when he won a late call-up to Warren Gatland's squad.

In January 2009 Yapp was announced as part of Wales' 2009 Six Nations squad where he figured against Scotland and Italy before playing against Canada and USA on Wales’s tour of North America.
