Matthew Rees

Born in Tonyrefail, Rees joined the Cardiff Blues and was named regional captain in 2013 after his switch from the Scarlets, where he made over 170 appearances.

His early rugby education saw him represent the Celtic Warriors and Pontypridd before signing with the west Walian outfit.

Rees made his debut for Wales against the USA in 2005 and has gone on to win over 50 caps and been Wales captain. He was also selected for the Lions tour to South Africa in 2009, playing in all three Test matches, and started alongside fellow Welsh front-row internationals Gethin Jenkins and Adam Jones in the Second Test.

Rees equalled the record held by Garin Jenkins for the most Wales caps as hooker in February 2013 against Ireland with 58 caps.

His first season at Blues was interupted by an enforced spell away from the game for medicial treatment. However, the inspirational front row made his return in 2014 and capped his comeback when he was named in the 32-man Wales squad to tour South Africa.
