He’s the Welsh rugby star who nicked a golf buggy under the influence of alcohol and took it for a spin down the M4.

Powell was disqualified from driving for 15 months and fined £1,000 for driving a buggy down the hard shoulder of the M4 in the early hours of Valentines Day in 2010.

Brecon-born Powell had been out celebrating Wales’ last-gasp win over Scotland at the Millennium Stadium, in which he had played 49 minutes.

He was arrested at a motorway service station at junction 33 of the M4 after he decided to drive the golf buggy from the Vale Hotel, Golf and Spa Resort off junction 34 to get some “munchies”.
