Hallam starts for Wales in Six Nations rugby opener

February 5th, 2021

Old Monmothian, Hallam Amos, will start for Wales in their opening Six Nations rugby match against Ireland in Cardiff this weekend.

The former Head Boy at Monmouth School for Boys has been picked on the wing by Wales boss, Wayne Pivac, for the fixture at the Principality Stadium on Sunday (3pm kick-off).

Hallam is poised to win his 23rd cap for Wales and make his second starting appearance in the Six Nations.

Hallam, 26, has scored six tries for Wales since making his full international debut on the wing against Tonga in November 2013.

The versatile Cardiff Blues player, who hails from Cross Ash, is also studying medicine at Cardiff University School of Medicine.

Hallam’s last appearance for Wales was against New Zealand when he scored his side’s opening try in their World Cup bronze medal match in Japan in November 2019.

After facing Ireland, Wales travel to Scotland on Saturday 13th February (4.45pm kick-off) before hosting reigning Six Nations champions, England, on Saturday 27th February (4.45pm kick-off).

Wales then head to Italy on Saturday 13th March (2.15pm kick-off) before concluding their championship in France on Saturday 20th March (8pm kick-off).

Hallam made his professional debut, aged 17, for Dragons against Wasps in the Anglo-Welsh Cup in October 2011.

He was selected as a member of Wales’ Rugby Sevens squad for the 2018 Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast.
