Louis Rees-Zammit extends his contract with Gloucester

Gloucester’s Wales Under-18 wing Louis Rees-Zammit has signed a first senior deal, extending his stay at the club.

The 18-year-old, who came through the Gloucester Rugby Academy, made his debut for the senior squad last season, when he was part of the team selected for the West Country derby against Bath.

His senior contract comes on the back of some incredible performances this season, as well as numerous achievements including becoming Gloucester Rugby’s youngest ever Premiership player, our youngest ever player in a European match, and the youngest player ever to score a hat-trick in the Premiership.  Added to that, last month he was named as Gallagher Premiership Player of the Month.

“I am delighted that my contract at Gloucester has been further extended to a senior squad long-term contract,” Rees-Zammit told the club website.

“My dream is to represent Wales at an international level, and I just want to keep working hard to achieve this goal, along with helping Gloucester reach our ambitions for success.”

The Cherry and Whites have not specified the length of Rees-Zammit’s “long-term” deal.
