Cardiff Blues have confirmed that Wales U20 fly-half Luke Scully has signed a long-term deal to return to Wales from Worcester Warriors next season.
The 19-year-old originally came through the Ospreys Pathway having started out at home town club Banwen RFC and also playing for Neath Athletic and Neath Schools.
Having featured down west at U16 and U18 level he made the move to Worcester ahead of the 2018/19 season, playing on loan for Hartpury while in the Academy, although a quad injury curtailed that campaign early and prevented him winning his first Wales U20 caps.
Returning to fitness this season though Scully impressed for Worcester Cavaliers in the Gallagher Premiership A League and made his debut in a red jersey on Friday when he came off the bench late in a defeat against Italy U20.
At just over 6ft and weighing around 90kg he has been compared to Dan Biggar and Owen Farrell in the sense that he is a game managing fly-half who embraces the physical side of matches.
Speaking to the Cardiff Blues official website, Scully said, “I’ve had a great time at Worcester and remain really grateful for the opportunity and experience they have given me but now I am looking forward to returning to Wales.
“Cardiff Blues are really building something at the Arms Park and have a proven track record of developing young players.
“They have some unbelievable talent in their backline and I can’t wait to learn as much as possible from their environment while playing my part in the years ahead.”
