Louis Rees-Zammit becomes Gloucester Rugby’s youngest Premiership player
15 April 2019
Saturday’s victory over Bath Rugby was memorable for a number of reasons, not least because Louis Rees-Zammit became the youngest Gloucester Rugby player to appear in a Premiership fixture.
It’s been a memorable couple of weeks for the young winger. He’s had a good couple of appearances in the Premiership Rugby Shield for Gloucester United, including scoring a superb solo try against Bristol Bears A.
But taking the field against Bath at Kingsholm would have topped it all.
Aged just 18 years and 70 days, he goes to the top of a list which contains some very well-known names.
