Rhys Webb set to make 200th appearance for Ospreys

With Rhys Webb set to make his 200th appearance against Cardiff on Judgement Day, we thought it would be the perfect time to look back at his career.

Born in Bridgend, Wales, in 1988, he began his rugby career playing for Bridgend Athletic RFC, before moving to the Ospreys.

Over the course of his impressive career, Rhys has seen great success, becoming known for his skillful play and his ability to read the field.

Webb’s professional career officially began in 2007, when he was signed by the Ospreys. Despite initially acting as backup to Mike Phillips, Webb was able to quickly demonstrate his abilities on the field and would soon become a key member of the team.

Rhys made 154 appearances for the Ospreys before having a spell in France with Toulon. Rhys then returned to the Ospreys.

Webb was at the forefront of the Ospreys recent successful Heineken Champions Cup campaign, putting up big performances in the games against Montpellier Herault and the late away win at Leicester.

The scrum half’s international career began in 2012, where he was called up to play for the Wales national team and became a crucial member of the Welsh squad.

Over the course of his career, Rhys won a Six Nations Championship and represented Wales at the Rugby World Cup.

Webb is now the Ospreys third highest try scorer with 51 tries and has Shane Williams’ record almost within reach.
