Cap No 1145
Josh Adams returned to Wales with Cardiff Blues in the summer of 2019 after spending four years at Worcester Warriors. He learned his rugby at Pontyberem and Coleg Sir Gar before spending two and a half years in the Scarlets Academy. He switched to Worcester in 2015 after scoring four tries in five games at the Junior World Championships.
He was in the Wales U18 team in 2013 with future senior Welsh internationals Steff Evans, Dafydd Howells, Dillon Lewis, Rory Thornton, Ollie Griffiths, Ryan Elias, Adam Beard and Tomos Williams. He went on to play 17 times for Wales U20 in 2014 and 2015, scoring eight tries.
He made his Premiership debut for Worcester against Bath in September, 2016 and signed a first-team contract less than two months later. He scored 13 tries in 23 appearances in his first senior season in the Worcester side to end the season as the joint top try scorer in the English Premiership and being named in the ‘2017-18 Dream Team’. That form earned him a call-up for the Welsh national side for the 2018 Six Nations.
He made his debut against Scotland on 3 February, 2018, in a 34-7 victory and then played in the defeat to England. He scored his first international try in the second Test triumph over Argentina in Santa Fe in the summer of 2018. He started every game in the 2019 Six Nations Grand Slam campaign and scored tries in three successive games against Italy, England and Scotland.
