A robust scrum half he was happy running with ball in hand or taking on any opposing back-row.

Holmes played against all the major touring nations for the Blue & Blacks including the win against the Grand Slam Australian side of 1984. His retirement from rugby union came after 10 years in 1985 when he became one of the big names to go north, joining Bradford for £80,000. Injuries curtailed his rugby league career and he retired from rugby two years later. He won 25 Wales caps and was selected for the British & Irish Lions tours to South Africa in 1980 and New Zealand in 1983 He was later to go on to become Head Coach of Cardiff RFC from 1996 to 1997 before joining the coaching staff at Caerphilly.
