Hailing from the Cynon Valley town of Aberdare, Lee James Evans played for his local youth team, graduating to senior level with them, whilst also being selected for the Mid District under 20 squad during their successful cup-winning run.

In the 2002/2003 season, Lee played on dual permit for the Hirwaun senior team and for the Neath under 21s.

Making his mark as a physically imposing back rower, Lee was invited to join up with Pontypridd for the 2003/2004 season, his potential underlined by a call up to represent the Young Warriors regional development team.

A series of dogged performances in the back row for Ponty earned Lee a call up to the Blues regional Development XV in 2006, and also earned him the title of "Clubman of the Year" and "Players' Player of the Year" at the club's annual awards ceremony.

Having left Sardis Road to play for Neath and Bedwas in the Premiership, then for his local club Aberdare, Lee made a Ponty comeback on permit during the 2016-17 campaign and was then signed up on a permanent contract.
