Monte Carlo-born Macleod brings versatility and adaptability to the squad, with the skillset to play across the entire back row.

Pembrokeshire-raised, he came through the Scarlets academy system as a No. 8, but has proven equally accomplished on either flank. A strong presence over the ball, he was voted the Scarlets’ ‘D Machine’ as their best defensive player in the 2018-19 season.

He made his debut for the Scarlets Under 16s in the 2012-13 season, followed soon after by the Wales U16 squad, while attending Ysgol Bro Gwaun in Fishguard.

Macleod made his debut for Llanelli against Pontypridd in September 2015. After making a further three appearances that season, scoring two tries in the process, Macleod went on to make his Scarlets debut against Munster.

The following year in 2016, Macleod featured for Wales U20, making three appearances.

He was selected for Wales’ autumn and Six Nations squads only for injury to prevent him winning his first cap in 2021. He was selected to take on Scotland, but he badly injured his Achilles during training and was ruled out for the entire campaign.
