Louis Rees-Zammit

2nd Feb 2001 1.91m/88kg Left Wing

Having started his youth career with the Cardiff Blues, Louis Rees-Zammit moved to Hartpury College and from there to the academy of Gloucester Rugby.

He had a sensational start to his professional career as he broke into the Gloucester senior team during the 2019-2020 season, at the age of 18 the Welsh winger scored two tries and set up another during Gloucester's 36-3 demolition of Worcester in what could prove to be the performance that launches his career on to the biggest stage of all.

His pace is electric, his size already impressive and he clearly has an eye for the try line, as evidenced by his brace against Worcester that had scores of pundits and fans purring.

He could qualify for England on residency grounds but the U18 Welsh International revealed that he has no intention of switching allegiance.

As well as numerous achievements including becoming Gloucester Rugby’s youngest ever Premiership player, the club's youngest ever player in a European match, he also became the youngest player ever to score a hat-trick in the Premiership. Added to that, he was named as Premiership Player of the Month for December 2019.

In January 2020, Rees-Zammit penned a new long-term deal with Gloucester. Two days after signing his first professional contract with Gloucester, Rees-Zammit was called into Wales' Six Nations squad.

May 2021 saw him get selected into British and Irish Lions 37-man squad for their tour to South Africa.
