Hamer-Webb adds firepower to back three

Hamer-Webb adds firepower to back three

Cardiff Rugby have snapped up former England Under-20s wing Gabriel Hamer-Webb on a short-term contract. 

The 22-year-old wing linked up with the Blue and Blacks earlier this week after spending the past three months representing Southland Stags in the New Zealand Provincial Championship. 

Hamer-Webb came through the Bath Rugby academy system and played 32 first team fixtures for the West Country club. 

He provides cover for Josh Adams, who is currently sidelined due to a shoulder injury, as well as Owen Lane, who picked up a short-term rib injury in Round One of the BKT United Rugby Championship. 

Cardiff Rugby head coach, Matt Sherratt said: “We’re pleased to bring Gabriel in for the next few months and he comes with some really positive endorsements from his time at Bath. 

“After leaving the Rec, he took himself out of his comfort zone and featured for Southland in the NPC, which would have been a great experience in a very different environment.

“He suits our style of play and will provide some extra depth and competition on the wing, where we currently have a couple of injuries.”
