Biography:

A product of Ysgol Gyfun Llanhari, Gareth graduated out of the Pontypridd Youth set up alongside fellow future internationals Kevin Morgan and Martyn Williams.

Having starred for Wales Youth in a Grand Slam season, and in a FIRA World Cup campaign, Gareth was introduced with caution to the Ponty senior squad, playing only five games in 1995, but making a significant impact as a speedy, side-stepping winger.

The following year saw Gareth's versatility, along with injury problems to a small Ponty squad, forcing him to play much of his rugby at outside half or full back, and winning a senior cap for Wales, against Tonga in 1997, wearing the no 15 shirt.

Ponty's recruitment drive in the summer of 1999 allowed Gareth to concentrate fully again on the winger's role, making his mark out wide, and was followed by further international honours with the Wales A and Sevens teams.

Gareth's status as a try poacher of the highest quality was underlined with some stunning scores in Ponty's bid for European glory in the 2002 season.

The advent of regional rugby saw Gareth moving on to represent the Celtic Warriors and then the Gwent Dragons, before joining Newport in the 2008/09 season.

Gareth Wyatt returned to Pontypridd for the 2010/11 season, and was appointed to the Coaching team at the beginning of the 2012/13 season - providing assistance to Paul John during his tours with the Wales Sevens squad.
