Since 2003, over 100 players have taken a bow for Wales whilst contracted to a Welsh region, so how do the numbers divvy up?
Regional Rugby has had its ups and downs since their formation in 2003/04 season, but there is no doubt they have contributed hugely to a sustained period of success at international level, with Wales winning three Grand Slams in 2005, 2008 and 2011 added four Six Nations titles in the last nine years. An added feather to the cap for the game, was having 15 Wales internationals in the Series winning Lions squad out in Australia last year.
So which region has provided the most internationals to the Test game and which players have had the most caps in that time? Thomas Davy has put together a brilliant infographic detailing the Welsh caps in all their entirety.
