Rugby referee turned local farmer Nigel Owens MBE opts for an Isuzu D-Max V-Cross

Famed ex-rugby referee Nigel Owens MBE has recently taken ownership of his new Isuzu D-Max V-Cross, supplied by Cawdor Isuzu, in order to assist with various jobs on his farm in Llanelli, Wales.

Owens, who is the most-capped referee in world rugby, decided to pursue a lifelong passion for farming following his retirement, resulting in the acquisition of 90 acres of farmland. Owens purchased the V-Cross due to its exceptional versatility and practicality, allowing him to tackle jobs on the farm such as transporting essential supplies and towing cattle weighing upwards of 2000kg!

The range-topping V-Cross came fully equipped with a load area liner, a towbar, and a colour-coded canopy to protect supplies from the rain and provide a comfortable space for his two dogs.

Showing vast enthusiasm for his new pick-up, Nigel Owens MBE said:

It’s the perfect truck for me as it does everything I need it to. I wanted a comfy vehicle for longer journeys which would also be able to pull its weight around the farm, and the D-Max does exactly that. It’s nice to drive, great at towing, and perfect for 5-hour trips across the country or just a 2-mile trip with the dogs.

Wyn Evans, Group Operations Manager, Cawdor Isuzu commented:

It was a pleasure being able to help Nigel find the best pick-up for his lifestyle. He wanted something smart, practical, and comfy, and that’s exactly what we delivered.”
