Gareth Anscombe

10th May 1991 1.84m/80kg Fly Half

Anscombe had an impressive 2012 ITM Cup campaign and was the top point scorer in the competition.

He made his Investec Super Rugby debut for the Blues, against the Chiefs in 2012 and has represented Auckland in the ITM Cup since his first year out of school in 2010. The former New Zealand Secondary Schools representative was the top point scorer at the IRB Junior World Championships in 2011 which shows what this guy is capable of.

In July 2014 he signed for the Cardiff Blues and in January 2015 was selected in the Welsh 6 nations squad. Anscombe qualifies to wear the red shirt through his Welsh mother. He missed out on the World Cup squad but was selected after an injury to Hallam Amos.

In May 2017, Cardiff Blues confirmed Anscombe has signed a new National Dual Contract with the region and Welsh Rugby Union.

The fly-half arrived in Wales in 2014, and has become an integral member of the Cardiff Blues squad, making 60 appearances, in which he has scored 428 points.

He missed out on Wales end of year tests in 2017 but his form with Cardiff Blues led to him being named in the Wales 6 Nations squad where he will look to add to his 11 Test caps and 4 points.

Anscombe made 4 appearances in the 2018 6 Nations and helped Scarlets to the Pro14 Final, as well as the Champions Cup semifinals before being included in the Wales squad for the June Tests.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Anscombe has had 18 European Cups appearances scoring 5 tries and 118 points.

Anscombe heads into the 2018 November International with 18 test caps.

Ahead of the 2019 Six Nations, Anscombe has had 7 previous 6 Nations appearances scoring 24 points.
