The Cardiff-born centre began his career with Dinas Powys at full back as an 11 year-old, later joining Glamorgan Wanderers where he played for two seasons in the Under 18 side. Allen made his Cardiff Blues debut against Newcastle Falcons in the LV=Cup in October 2011 at the age of eighteen.

Starting out as full back for Wales Under-18s, Allen moved to the centre whilst playing for the Wales Under-20s. He was in the Welsh side that made history by becoming the first Welsh team to defeat New Zealand (9-6) at the Junior World Championship in South Africa in 2012 where he was awarded the most improved player of the tournament by Under-20s head coach Danny Wilson.

Also featuring in the national sevens set-up, Allen made his debut for Wales in the second round of competition on the IRB Sevens circuit in Dubai in 2012 as a replacement against New Zealand. Allen then went on to be voted IRB try of the tournament in 2013, for his opening touchdown, after an overwhelming 49% of the votes.

Allen enjoyed a stunning 2013/14 season as he cemented his place in the Cardiff Blues line-up and was handed his first Wales cap during the autumn internationals of 2013. Allen's form throughout the season, despite a spell out with a shoulder injury, was rewarded when he signed a new long-term deal at the region and was named in the Wales squad to tour South Africa in June 2014.

The 2014/15 season saw Allen make 20 appearances for Blues, scoring four tries, before he was named in the initial Welsh squad for Rugby World Cup training in June 2015.

Injuries limited Allen's opportunities in the 2015/16 season but he was named in the initial Great Britain Sevens training squad ahead of the 2016 Olympic Games.
