Claire presents Dragons 'Try of the Season' award

We’re delighted that Claire Martin, our Newport Hyundai Brand/Business Manager, presented an award at the Gwent Dragons end of season dinner last Saturday (May 9, 2015).

Claire gave the ‘Try of the Season’ award to Thomas Rhys Thomas, who is a Hooker for the team.

Thomas was born in Abercynon and started playing rugby at Abercynon RFC when he was eight-years-old. He progressed in rugby and played for Neath College and UWIC before making his rugby career professional at Cardiff RFC in 2003.

He scored his first ever try in an under 9s game against Beddau and remembers it very well as he knocked a boys tooth out scoring. His first try for the Blues was on his debut against the Celtic Warriors in 2003.

Thomas has solid international experience as he made his senior Wales debut in 2005 and has won 27 caps.

We have sponsored the Dragons for a number of years and as well as Claire presenting an award we also took along four Hyundai cars for people to have a look at. The cars were also at the ground for the Newport Gwent Dragons vs Edinburgh Rugby game that took place at Rodney Parade on Friday.

People who attended the game and the end of season dinner were able to have a look around the Hyundai i10, i20, i30 and the i40 models. For more information about the Hyundai models, please call 01633 636100.
