A medical student, Hallam Amos is a talented outside back who made his debut for the Dragons in the LV= Cup victory away at London Wasps. He scored a first-half try in the game in which he became the youngest ever regional player at 17 years and 28 days. This was surpassed in the same game by 16-year-old Jack Dixon but Hallam still holds the record for youngest regional starter and try-scorer.
Hallam also broke the record for the youngest ever starting player in the PRO12 when he started against the Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium in April 2012. He broke the then record held by Kristian Phillips who was 17 years 250 days when he started against Connacht in May 2008 - Hallam was 17 years 208 days.
Amos represented Wales through the age-grades and made his Test debut against Tonga in 2013. He has gone on to win 25 test caps and represented Wales at the 2015 and 2019 Rugby World Cups.
He has the ability to play right across the three-quarter line but specializes in the back three, where he brings real strength in depth.
Amos has also represented Wales in the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games sevens competition.
At the end of the 2018/19 season, he left the Dragons after eight seasons with the province during which he made 115 appearances scoring 36 tries.
He furthered his career with a deal at Cardiff Blues in 2019, making his debut against Leicester Tigers in November of the same year.
In October 2021, the Wales and Cardiff back three player announced that he would retire from the sport to focus on his medical career.
