Cambridge Rugby have made another addition to their squad ahead of the 2024/25 Championship campaign. The Blood & Sand have signed 24 year old former Wales U18 captain Iestyn Rees from Ampthill.

The 6’2” back/second row started his rugby journey at Llandeilo RFC before joining Llandovery and then moved to Pro 14 side Scarlets.

Iestyn represented Wales U20 in the U20 Six Nations and World Rugby Under 20 Championship. In 2022, he competed for Wales Sevens at the 2022 Rugby World Cup Sevens in Cape Town.

Blood & Sand Head Coach Richie Williams says:

“Iestyn is another versatile middle 5 player that has proven experience at the highest level. Last season he was on fire at Ampthill until he picked up an unfortunate injury at Christmas which curtailed his season. He is comfortable at both 2nd row and back row and will bring a real edge and intent to our game. He is another young player who we believe will flourish in our environment.”
