Considered a player with a lot of potential, Rhys Carré joined Saracens from Cardiff Blues ahead of the 2019/20.
“I have spoken to Mark McCall who said he was very excited about him so I am looking forward to Rhys joining.” – Fellow Welshman Liam Williams
Highly-rated by those in Wales, the young prop was a surprise inclusion in Warren Gatland’s World Cup training squad having impressed for the Blues in the Pro14 and in Europe.
Carré, uncapped at senior level for Wales, has played age-grade rugby for his nation and nailed down the number one jersey early on in his 12-cap period with the Under-20s.
He featured regularly for Blues Academy before his senior debut in 2016 and he continued his development in the Welsh Premiership with Cardiff RFC.
The towering front rower then broke into the Welsh region’s first team and was a consistent pick in their matchday 23 for the 2018/19 campaign.
Carré is considered a smart operator defensively, around the breakdown and at set-piece time as well as an explosive ball carrier.
