Prior to the Dove Men Series in 2013, Dan’s last six international games have all been against the Wallabies, three on the Welsh tour of 2012 and then three for the British & Irish Lions as they won the series that summer.

It’s no surprise then that he also made his first start for Wales in 2009 against Australia after making his debut a week earlier as a late replacement against Argentina.

Dan featured in four of the five fixtures in the 2012 Grand Slam win having made five appearances in the RWC 2011.
