Biography
James begins his fourth season at London Welsh, having passed 50 league appearances for the club last season. His one try for the club came in the 62-5 win over the Cavalieri Prato at the Kassam.

James made 27 appearances for the Exiles during the club's Championship winning season, scoring six tries, having made the number 13 jersey his own by the end of the campaign.

He made a habit of scoring important tries in the Championship chase, and grabbed a brace in the Exiles' round 1 play-off win over Nottingham, and crossed again against the Green & Whites in the return game. James then crossed for one of Welsh's four tries in their first leg Championship final win at the Cornish Pirates.

James was a late arrival at Old Deer Park during the 2010/11 season, initially for a loan period from Cardiff RFC to cover an early season spate of injuries, but made up for lost time by scoring a try on his debut away to Birmingham & Solihull in November 2010.

He followed that with a brace against Worcester at Sixways to inspire Welsh to an unlikely comeback, as the Exiles snatched a four-try bonus-point having trailed 39-3 at one stage.

The former Hereford Cathedral School pupil was a member of the Newport Dragons Academy, and dualled with Ebbw Vale RFC in the Welsh Premiership.

James represented Wales at U16, U18, U19, U20 and 7s. He made a name for himself with Wales when he scored an outstanding try in the U19 Six Nations Grand Slam decider against France in 2006, and also played in the U19 RWC in Dubai.

The former county sprint champion at 100m and 200m played in 17 IRB Sevens tournaments after being first capped as a 19-year-old in Hong Kong. In 2007/08 he was Wales and Europe's highest try scorer in the IRB 7s Series and the 13th highest try scorer in the World Sevens with 20 tries.

In 2009 James left the Dragons to join then Championship side Coventry.
