Louis Rees-Zammit reacts to being named a British & Irish Lion

At 20 years and 93 days old, Louis Rees-Zammit becomes the youngest Lion on the day of selection in a touring party since Ireland's David Hewitt in 1959 and his rise to the summit has been nothing short of remarkable. Making his Premiership debut for the Cherry & Whites aged 18, the flying winger has held his foot firmly on the accelerator ever since, notching up 18 tries in 31 appearances for Gloucester Rugby and scoring five tries in his first nine Wales appearances.

Rees-Zammit's selection on the Lions tour comes after an impressive Six Nations campaign with Wales and his continued form for the Cherry & Whites, and his lightening power and pace will be a weapon for Gatland’s Lions in South Africa.
