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

In 2008/09, Webb pushed his way into the Ospreys 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 was born in Bridgend. He 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 against Italy on 10 March 2012 as a second-half replacement.

In March 2015, he became the eighth player to sign a dual-contract between club and the WRU.[6]

On 6 September 2015, Webb was injured during a warm up match against Italy and was ruled out of the 2015 Rugby World Cup. He was replaced by Gareth Davies.

Recalled during the 2016 Six Nations Championship after a remarkable recovery producing Man of the Match performances for the Ospreys, Webb replaced Gareth Davies as scrum-half during the match against England. He was then back at first choice for his position, starting for Wales' last match of the tournament against Italy.

Webb was selected for the 2017 British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand. He appeared as a replacement in two of the Test Matches on the tour, and scored one try.[7]

On 10 October 2017, it was announced that Webb would leave Ospreys after 10 years with the regions to join top French club Toulon in the Top 14 from a three-year contract. Due to recent changes to availability for the Welsh team, this likely marked the end of Webb's international career.[8]
