Gloucester wing Louis Rees-Zammit has signalled his intention to commit his international future to Wales after admitting it is his “dream” to play for them, despite Eddie Jones offering the teenage sensation the chance to play for England.

Rees-Zammit celebrated his recent Premiership breakthrough by signing a new long-term contract with Gloucester on Monday, which will keep him at Kingsholm for the foreseeable future with his first professional deal since joining the academy last season.

His electric form in the Premiership in scoring five tries from four appearances helped earn him the Player of the Month award in December, with his purple patch also catching the eye of Jones with the Six Nations looming large at the start of next month.
