Rees-Zammit will surely now be pushing for a place in Wayne Pivac’s side to see out the rest of the Six Nations campaign.
Having started his youth career with the Cardiff Blues, he moved to Hartpury College and from there to the academy of Gloucester Rugby. He broke into the Gloucester senior team in the 2019–20 season, becoming the club’s youngest ever Premiership player. He scored two tries against Worcester during a 36–3 win in December 2019, and later the same month became the first 18-year-old to score a hat-trick of tries during a 33–26 loss to Northampton.
He received the Premiership Player of the Month award in December 2019.
