Rhys Priestland

Rhys Priestland joined Cardiff Rugby from Bath Rugby ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

The outside half has a wealth of experience on the very top level of the game, coming through the Scarlets academy to make his Wales debut in 2011.

After a starring role in Wales' march to the Rugby World Cup semi final in 2011, Priestland established himself on the international stage, going on to win a half century of caps.

Priestland made the switch to Bath Rugby in 2015, where he became one of the most consistent performers in the Gallagher Premiership - making more than a century of appearances, scoring more than 800 points in the Blue, Black and White and finished the 2019/20 campaign as the Premiership's top points scorer.

After an impressive start to his career in Cardiff, Priestland was recalled into the international set-up, providing an assist upon his return against New Zealand.
