Robin Sowden-Taylor departs as head of S&C

Posted by

After 17 years as a player and coach, Robin Sowden-Taylor will leave his role of head of strength and conditioning with Cardiff this summer.

The 38-year-old made his Arms Park debut in April 2001 against Cross Keys, going on to 161 times for the club across the pre and post-2003 era, captaining the side during the 2005/06 season and part of the squads that won the 2009 Anglo-Welsh Cup and 2010 Amlin Challenge Cup.

Alongside that Sowden-Taylor won eight Wales caps after a debut in Rome during the 2005 Grand Slam winning campaign, although his playing career came to an early end due to injury after a year playing for the Dragons.

After some time out of the game he became a strength and conditioning coach at Neath before returning to the Cardiff set up in 2014, spending seven seasons putting the players through their paces and helping us win the 2010 European Challenge Cup before departing this summer.
