The following year he was in the side which lost 26-25 to the All Blacks at the Millennium Stadium, but did help Wales to a thrilling two-point win over Australia in Cardiff in 2005.

In 2008 he started in Wales' 26-19 victory over England at Twickenham on their way to a second Grand Slam in three years.

Sonny arrived at London Welsh from the Ospreys, where he made 157 appearances, including 29 tries, having joining them in 2004.

During his time at the region, he helped them to three Celtic/Magners League titles and to victory over Leicester Tigers in the 2008 EDF Energy Cup final at Twickenham.
