Additional information

HERITAGE
Grandfather, Dragotin TIPURIC, was a Croatian prisoner of war, who moved to Wales after being released by the German Army. "We never got much history out of my grandfather but he spoke a few languages. The story goes that he was an interpreter. He was a big, strong guy... much bigger than me." (dailymail.co.uk, 7 Feb 2017)


COMMONWEALTH CHANCE
Decided to leave his PRO14 club, Ospreys, to play at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. "Obviously it hasn’t gone to plan with the Ospreys this season; Babs (Wales sevens coach Gareth WILLIAMS) spoke to me and said there was a chance he could have a player to go for the sevens and asked if I was up for it. To go and be part of the Commonwealths is a chance of a lifetime." (walesonline.co.uk, 19 Mar 2018)


RUGBY CAREER
Represented Wales more than 50 times and was part of the team that reached the quarterfinals of the New Zealand 2015 Rugby World Cup, and played one test for the British and Irish Lions. (bbc.com, 10 Mar 2017)
