Hailing from Pencoed Chris Dicomidis represented his local club through the junior ranks before joining neighbours Tondu, playing as a full back.

Growing well past the six foot mark, Chris was utilised as a lock forward and was drafted into the Celtic Warriors Academy, gaining international recognition with Wales under 19s. A move to Pontypridd ensued in 2004.

Chris made his mark as a towering ball winner and marauding forward, capped by Wales at under 21 level. His influence on the field of play earned him a nomination as Pontypridd captain in 2011, leading the club to unprecedented success with a series of league and cup triumphs.

Having been honoured as Welsh Rugby Writers and Premiership Player of the Year, Chris was given the opportunity to turn out at regional level for the Blues, and was drafted into the senior squad in 2013, still linking up with Pontypridd at club level.

Having been called up to play for the Barbarians, Chris also elected to represented the country of his forefathers, Cyprus, at senior international level.

In the summer of 2016 Chris Dicomidis made a return to the ranks of Pontypridd RFC, rejoining the squad as a hugely experienced forward.

Chris is employed as a WRU Rugby Hub Officer.
