Rhys Webb (born 9 December 1988 in Bridgend, Wales)[1] is a Wales international rugby union player who plays at Scrum-half for Ospreys[2] and Wales U20.

In 2008/09, Webb pushed his way into the Opsreys starting 15 after injuries to fellow scrum-halves Mike Phillips and Jamie Nutbrown. He plays his domestic rugby for Aberavon in the Principality Premiership,[3] having previously played for Bridgend Ravens and Bridgend Athletic. Webb, a scrum half, was a member of the age grade set up in the Ospreys region, winning the Reebok Regional Championship trophy with the Ospreys U18 during the 2005–2006 season and as a losing finalist with the Ospreys U20 during the 2006–2007 season.

Webb played for Wales U18 in the 2005–2006 U18 Home Four Nations Championship and was called up as a member of the 2006–2007 Wales U19 set up for the IRB U19 World Championships. He was called up to the Wales U20 squad for the 2007–2008 RBS U20 Six Nations Championships where he played three times and scored a try, and was also in the squad for the 2008 IRB Junior World Championships.

Webb was a member of the Wales squad that won the 2009 Rugby World Cup Sevens in Dubai and continues to be part of the national rugby sevens set-up in 2010.[4]

In January 2012 he was called into the Wales 35 man senior squad for the training camp in Poland prior to the 2012 Six Nations Championship.[5] He made his full international debut for Wales versus Italy on 10 March 2012 as a second half replacement.
