Wales Under 20s winger Josh Adams burst onto the Sixways scene during the 2016/17 campaign after making his Premiership debut against Bath Rugby in September 2016.

Adams signed a first-team contract less than two months after that debut, was nominated for the Anglo-Welsh Cup Breakthrough Award after a fine showing in the competition and had become a first-team regular by the end of the season, scoring 13 tries in 23 appearances.

Adams' tries proved crucial during the 2016/17 season as he racked up four braces and became another success story of the Warriors Academy.

The 2017/18 season was even more impressive for Adams and, after demonstrating his prowess as a try-scorer, the 23-year-old was called up to the Wales NatWest 6 Nations squad.

He was handed his Wales debut in the opening game against Scotland and followed it up by winning his second cap against England at Twickenham.

The pacy winger joined the Warriors Academy from Llanelli Scarlets in 2015 after a fine showing at the World Rugby Under 20 Championship, where he scored four tries in five starts. During the tournament Adams scored a double in a 66-3 win over Japan, before crossing the whitewash against Ireland and Australia.

Adams impressed in his first senior outing for Warriors, scoring in a pre-season match against Saracens at Bramley Road in 2015 and continued his development with spells at Cinderford during the 2015/16 campaign and Nottingham at the start of the 2016/17 season.

He also impressed for Worcester Cavaliers in the Aviva A League before the first-team came calling.
