Ken Owens Life

Kenneth James Owens (born 3 January 1987) is a Welsh rugby union footballer who plays as a hooker for the Scarlets and Wales.

Early life

Owens was a fluent Welsh speaker at Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Bro Myrddin, and he is a Ysgol Gyfun Gyfun Bro Myrddin. He began his career with Carmarthen Athletic RFC before moving to UWIC RFC in 2005.


Ken Owens Career

Club career

In a match against the Glasgow Warriors, Owens made his Scarlets debut towards the end of the 2005–06 season. He left UWIC and began playing for Llanelli RFC, his hometown rugby team. Owens made 47 appearances for the Scarlets in 2006-07, scoring his first goal against Border Reivers in a Celtic League match. Owens sustained a knee injury in 2007, and Samoan hooker Mahonri Schwalger was hired on a short-term deal as his temporary replacement.

Owens signed his third professional deal on March 11 and committed himself to the Scarlets for a further two years.

Owens was selected to play at Number 8 against the Dragons as injury cover on January 5th.

International career

Owens was called up to the Barbarians squad in May 2010, his first match against England coming from him before he had earned his first international cap for Wales. He earned his first game of the season for the Scarlets as a result of his season, as well as improving his line-out throwing skills.

Owens was called up to the Wales squad for the 2010 Six Nations due to injuries to hookers Matthew Rees and Gareth Williams. Following Richard Hibbard's injury, he was called up to Wales' 45-man training squad for the 2011 Rugby World Cup in June 2011. In Wales' third pool match at the tournament on September 26, 2011, he made his debut for the team, defeating Namibia 8–7.

Owens appeared in all five games as Wales claimed the Grand Slam in 2012.

Owens was selected for the 2015 Rugby World Cup in Wales' 31-man team, but he was forced to leave the bench in the 23-19 quarter final loss to South Africa.

Owens' 50th test was a 20–18 loss to France in the 2017 Six Nations Championship, in which he played the entire game, with the exception of the 20 minutes of injury time at the end of the second half. Owens was later selected for the British & Irish Lions' tour to New Zealand. Owens appeared in six matches on tour, captaining the team's 22–16 loss to the Blues in Auckland and coming off the bench in two of the three test matches against New Zealand. He appeared in 13 minutes of the first test, a 30–15 loss, and 11 minutes of the third test, in which he was suspended for mistakenly offside in the dying minutes, but the All Blacks were eventually punished for a scrum rather than a scrum; the match and the series ended as draws; referee Romain Poite is an acronym that should have spoiled the game.


As England prepares to face Wales in a Six Nations match, Rugby's best of rivalries will reignite hostilities... and Steve Borthwick's team will know they'll need to make Twickenham rumble!, February 10, 2024
CHRIS FOY: As the hosts attempt to resurrect their Twickenham citadel and their rivals fight for a dozen years of Six Nations pain, England and Wales beckons. Despite a thrilling, logic-defying comeback, rugby's top players will revive hostilities this afternoon in the midst of an English mission to recover lost home advantage. Both hope and enthusiasm are on the line, and new-era optimism is shaky. Something has to give. England has won three, drawn one, and lost six in the last ten Tests at Twickenham, including a surprise loss to Fiji in late August last year. Five months ago, France was being put to the sword by France, who romped to a historic 53-10 triumph.

Despite the loss of veteran Test stars to retirement and Louis Rees-Zammit's shocking NFL departure, Warren Gatland supports a new-look Wales to ignite Six Nations shock.', January 23, 2024
ALEX BYWATER: After braving a treacherous flight to Dublin by Storm Isha, Wales head coach Warren Gatland said on Monday that "you write us off at your peril" for this year's Six Nations. The start of 2024 marks the start of a new period of Welsh rugby. After a number of senior figures stepped away, Gatland's squad for the upcoming Championship has an average age of just 25. In the build-up to last year's World Cup, Gatland lost Alun Wyn Jones, Justin Tipuric, Ken Owens, and Rhys Webb, and Tim Bolton and Leigh Halfpenny have both retired.

An examination of Jac Morgan's ascension to fame ahead of Wales' all-important match against Georgia, October 1, 2023
After leading Wales into the World Cup quarterfinals at the age of just 23, Jac Morgan has been dubbed the man who 'can literally do it all.' Morgan's ascension to Warren Gatland's skipper has been illuminating. He was playing rugby part-time and working as an apprentice engineer when he failed to secure a senior Scarlets job four years ago. The tough-tackling flanker was left out of Wales' summer tour of South Africa completely, last year. Now, he is his country's top male, aspiring to tournament glory.
