He joined Rumney RFC but in 1985 played two trial matches for Leeds RL, although never playing for Leeds by attending the trials the Welsh Rugby Union deemed this an act of professionalism and suspended him from playing rugby union.

In April 1985 Ford's suspension was lifted and he was allowed to play union again, joining Cardiff.

In 1990 he won his first international cap, facing Ireland in the 1990 Five Nations Championship. Ford was utilised on the wing, and scored a try on his debut. He was next selected for Wales on their 1990 summer tour of Namibia. He went on to gain eight Welsh caps.
