Cory Hill joined the Cardiff Blues Academy from Bridgend College having won caps for Wales at Under 16 and 18 levels. He played for Wales U20 at the Junior World Championships in 2011 and 2012, captaining the side in 2012. His senior debut for home-town club Pontypridd came against Llanelli in April, 2010, when he scored two tries. He has also played for Cardiff and Bedwas.

He was released by the Blues in 2013 after making 10 appearances for them and briefly joined Birmingham Moseley in the English Championship. The Dragons spotted him and brought him back to Wales in November, 2013, and his Dragons debut came in the LV= Cup clash with Wasps at Rodney Parade.

He was made Dragons captain for the 2017/18 season and has made more than 100 appearances for the Gwent region. He won his first cap in the opening game of the 2016 Autumn Series against Australia. His first start came later in the same series against Japan and his 6 Nations debut came in the win over Italy in Rome on 5 February, 2017. His first 6 Nations start came in the home win over Scotland on 3 February, 2018, and he started every game in that championship.

He was named vice-captain for Wales’ 2017 summer tour to play Tonga and Samoa. Having played in the win over Tonga in Auckland he was one of four Welsh players called-up to join the British & Irish Lions tour party in New Zealand. He was on the replacements bench for the drawn game with the Hurricanes, but didn’t go on.

He was co-captain with Ellis Jenkins of the 2018 tour to the USA and Argentina. He led his country for the first time in the 23-10 triumph over the Pumas in San Juan on 9 June, 2018. He was in charge again a week later when Wales won the second Test.
He scored a vital 67th minute try against England to take the lead in the third round match of the 2019 Grand Slam campaign. His score gave Wales the lead and enabled them to make it three from three. Unfortunately, he picked up an ankle injury in that game that wrecked the rest of his season.
