Jarrod Evans

25th Jul 1996 1.78m/86kg Fly Half

Evans came through the junior ranks of his local club before his precocious talents saw him called into the Blues Academy.

The talented playmaker has been capped by Wales and Youth and Under-18 level and made his debut for Pontypridd when aged just 17 in 2013.

Evans was part of the Wales Under-20 squad that took part in the Junior World Championships in the summer of 2015 in Italy.

Despite being hampered by a broken jaw through the middle of the 2016 season, young fly-half Evans was still awarded a new long-term contract due to how highly he is rated by the Cardiff Blues management.

With only two league and European appearances 2016 after a breakout 2015/16, Evans pushed Steve Shingler for the backup berth to Wales international Gareth Anscombe, and showed off some of the attacking flair that he provided in pre-season.

He went into the 2018/19 season with 45 appearances for Cardiff and 227 points scored.

In October 2018, the former Wales U20 fly-half was officially called into the Wales squad for the November Tests.

Ahead of the 2020 Six nations, Evans was named for the Wales squad with a total of 3 caps.
