Louis Rees-Zammit stuns the rugby world by revealing his decision to pursue a career in the NFL through a video announcement.

Welsh rugby player Louis Rees-Zammit has surprised the rugby community by declaring his intention to switch to American football, effective immediately, just before the start of the Six Nations tournament. The 22-year-old announced this shocking decision on the same day as the unveiling of the Welsh national squad. He will soon leave for Florida to join the NFL’s International Player Pathway, which provides top athletes from various countries a chance to earn a spot on an NFL team. Gloucester, Rees-Zammit’s current team, has agreed to release him and Wales manager Warren Gatland has wished him luck while also leaving the door open for his potential return.
