Biography

Rheon schooled at Ysgol Bro Myrddin and played for Wales under-16s at the Millfield School tournament before joining the Scarlets Academy. He played for Newcastle Emlyn and made a debut for Carmarthen Quins in 2010-11 and played for Wales under-20s on seven occasions, including the Junior World Cup of 2011, as well as making a Scarlets debut against the Saracens and played for the Barbarians against the South of Scotland. In April 2013 he joined the Cornish Pirates, but made a great impression at Aberavon in four loan appearances in 2013-14 being on the winning side each time and scoring a storming try against Swansea on his debut. He is a strong tackler who seems to blend in well with his West Walian friend Aled Thomas, both being able to speak Welsh as they call the moves! Rheon is believed (mostly by Will Price) to be a ‘West Walian farmer of sorts’. He is still a young man who has much more left in the tank.
