Jonah Holmes is the nephew of former double Olympic gold medal rower, Andy Holmes who won gold at the 1984 and 1988 Games. He qualified to play for Wales through his grandmother, Rachel Jenkins, who was born in Cwmllynfell.

A graduate of biomedical sciences from Birkbeck, University of London, he played junior rugby for London Scottish before going on to have senior spells with Wasps, Rosslyn Park, Henley, London Welsh and Yorkshire Carnegie.

It was while at London Welsh, under the guidance of former Ospreys and Dragons head coach Lyn Jones, that he began to focus fully on playing in the back three after dabbling at scrum-half.

Now equally at home at full-back and wing, he signed for Leicester Tigers in 2017 and his 10 tries in 11 games saw him catapulted into the Wales set-up. His first international call came in the autumn of 2018 and he made his Wales debut at full-back when he started in the 74-24 thrashing of Tonga at Principality Stadium.

He was named in the Wales squad for the 2019 Six Nations and made his tournament debut as a replacement wing in the 26-15 victory over Italy in Rome to keep Wales on course for the third Grand Slam of the Warren Gatland era.
