"I have the pleasure to coach Gabriel Williams-Rumble, one of the players who has represented Wales with some success at the national team level during his junior years (at Under 16 and Under 18 level in European Championship competitions). As a new coach to this team, I immediately noticed his good work ethic and willingness to learn. His desire to get better and to apply the offensive and defensive principles which I am trying to implement into the team play are noticeable - as we are getting ready to take part in a tournament in Lithuania he showed the willingness and the motivation to work hard and compete. He is clearly the type of player any coach would love in his team."

He has developed a consistent 3-point shot with the ability to drive to the basket. He is ambitious to explore and develop his game further a field so he can fulfill his journey as he progresses from U18 along the pathway for Basketball Wales U20 and Senior National Team selection."
