West Wales Raiders are very pleased to announce the signing of talented young welsh hooker Liam Rice-Wilson.

Liam was recently called up by John Kear to be a part of the Wales squad in the European Championships, even though he didn’t manage to get any game time he received invaluable time on the training pitch with the players and staff.

As well as being called up for the Welsh first team, Liam has played for Wales in the student world cup and then in the under 23 commenwealth 9’s, both being played out in Austrailia.

Last season Liam played for Raiders league 1 competitors Coventry Bears and was on fine form for them throughout their campaign.
Rice-Wilson is a talented hooker who can also cover halfback, Rice-Wilson is a player who Coach Kim Williams pursued to bolster his 2019 squad.

Head Coach Kim Wiliams spoke of the new signing
“Liam is a good young player who can continue to develop over the next few years with our club. He covers the key positions of hooker and half and is also a high-quality young man with a great attitude. I am very pleased to have him on board”.

Another good young signing,in line with the announcements so far.

Although the ages aren't mentioned,it seems Liam is 22 yrs.

Born in Kent and changed from the other code at 14 yrs of age and played league for Medway Dragons.

Scored a try for Coventry at Stebonheath Park.


The club don't announce how long the contract runs - which may be wise - but it seems this squad could all grow together.

A young fit spine to the side is a good policy when many other clubs,in all divisions,seem to be going with the over 30's.
