David Rees (rugby union)

David Rees (born 15 October 1974) is a former Bristol Rugby player, currently playing for Clifton, who gained 11 caps for England between 1997 and 1999.

Sale where he was first selected to play for England. Fourth cap on 6 December 1997 at Twickenham when facing legendary Jonah Lomu. With about 5 minutes gone, New Zealand won a penalty in their own 22. The All black fly-half Andrew Mehrtens kicked cross-field and found Rees on his right wing. Rees counter-attacked, chipped over the head of Lomu. He collected the ball, sidestepped round Zinzan Brooke's cover tackle and scored in the corner. The try sparked England on to a 23-9 half-time lead, though the All Blacks fought back in the second half with the match ending in a 26-26 draw.

In 1999 he moved to Bristol, and moved to Leeds Tykes in 2003 after Bristol were relegated. Later, in 2006, he moved to Newbury R.F.C. In the 2008-2009 season he joined Clifton where he is still playing.
