Steve Shingler

20th Jun 1991 1.91m/93kg Fly Half

Steven Shingler was born in Swansea, Wales and represented Wales Under-20's on 14 occasions. Shingler made his debut for Llanelli RFC in 2009 and was soon on the regional stage, making four appearances during the season.

Following a two-year spell in England with London Irish, Shingler returned to Scarlets and has been a key performer this season over his in the Guinness PRO12 and European Rugby Champions Cup.

In January 2012, Shingler was named in the provisional Scotland squad for the 2012 Six Nations, based on the fact that his mother was born in Dumfries, Scotland.

However the WRU challenged this position, and the IRB ruled that Shingler was only eligible to play for Wales, and not Scotland.

In May 2012 an IRB appeal hearing confirmed the earlier ruling that Shingler can only represent Wales. In May 2013, he was selected in the Wales national rugby union team 32 man training squad for the summer 2013 tour to Japan.

The Swansea-born back amassed over 300 points and 60+ appearances during his two spells with the Scarlets.

In March 2016, Shingler arrived at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park during the summer of 2016 and brings the ability to play fly-half, centre and full-back.

His arrival at the club will add to the back line options and firepower as he links up once again with Head Coach Danny Wilson.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Shingler has had 32 European Cups appearances scoring 116 points.
