Rhys Patchell followed in the footsteps of another Ysgol Glantaf product, Jamie Roberts, in playing for Cardiff Blues and then Wales. Capped by Wales at U16, 18 and Sevens levels, he graduated from the Blues Academy into the full regional side at an early age in 2012 and went on to score more than 600 points in a five-year stint at the Arms Park that saw him make 83 appearances. He scored 174 points in the 2015/16 season to top the Guinness PRO12 charts.

He joined the Scarlets in 2016 and it proved to be a shrewd move as he ended his first season as the leading points scorer in the Guinness PRO12 once again with 145 and picked up a winners’ medal after helping the west Walians to beat Munster in the final at the Aviva Stadium.

He made his senior Wales debut on the summer tour to Japan in 2013, coming off the bench as a replacement for Dan Biggar at outside-half in a 22-18 victory in Osaka. He was a first-half replacement for Owen Williams the next week in Tokyo when the Japanese came out on top, 23-8. 

He had to wait three years before he won his next cap, and made his first start, after being called out to New Zealand as a replacement for the 2016 summer tour. He came on as a replacement in the midweek game against the Chiefs and started at full-back in the last two Tests with the All Blacks.

He moved into his favoured No 10 shirt for the first two games of the 2018 Six Nations campaign, a home win over Scotland on his tournament debut and an away defeat to England, before dropping to the bench for the win over Italy. He was back at No 10 for the two wins over Argentin on the 2018 summer tour, scoring 30 points in the two games, and then notched his first international try in the home win over Tonga in November, 2018.
