Cardiff have announced the signing of former England Under 20 international Gabriel Hamer-Webb on a short-term deal.

A product of Bath Academy, Hamer-Webb made his senior debut with the club in 2019 and went on to play 32 times.

The 23-year-old also represented England Under 20 side on two occasions during the 2020 Six Nations Under 20s Championship.

He will now provide cover to Josh Adams, who is currently sidelined due to a shoulder injury.

“We’re pleased to bring Gabriel in for the next few months and he comes with some really positive endorsements from his time at Bath," said Cardiff head coach Matt Sherratt.

“After leaving the Rec, he took himself out of his comfort zone and featured for Southland in the NPC, which would have been a great experience in a very different environment.

“He suits our style of play and will provide some extra depth and competition on the wing, where we currently have a couple of injuries.”
