Lou Reed (born 10 September 1987) is a Wales international rugby union footballer. He currently plays as a lock for the Cardiff Blues in the Pro12 league.

Reed signed for the Scarlets on a professional development contract in March 2006,[1] but only made five appearances in the 2006–07 season. In order to gain some experience of first-team rugby, Reed was loaned to Rotherham for a month in December 2007.[2]

In May 2012 the press announced that Reed would join Cardiff Blues, and the move was confirmed on 8 June. [3]

International[edit]

In June 2011 he was named the Wales national rugby union team 45 man training squad for the 2011 Rugby World Cup.[4] Reed made his full international debut for Wales versus Scotland on 12 February 2012 as a second half replacement.
