Seb Davies puts pen to paper on new deal

Posted by

Cardiff Blues second row Seb Davies has signed a new long-term contract to stay at the Arms Park and play a key role in the engine room over the next few years.

The 23-year-old from Cardiff has come through the development pathway, playing for Pentyrch RFC before attending Coleg y Cymoedd alongside playing in the age grade system, and was part of the Wales U20 side that won the Grand Slam in 2016.

Davies made his debut against Pau in October 2016 before establishing himself in the first team during the 2017/18 season, playing the full 80 minutes in the European Challenge Cup Final against Gloucester in Bilbao.

To-date he has made 68 Cardiff Blues appearances and won seven Wales caps since making his debut on the 2017 summer tour of the Pacific Islands, featuring across the second and back row for the national team.

Speaking to the official website, Davies said, “I’ve really enjoyed my time here since stepping up into the first team environment a few years ago, and now I’m looking forward to kicking onto the next stage of my development.

“As a group, we’ve already made some great memories, and we’re hungry for more success. You can see that we’re building something really special here. It was a no brainer to sign a new deal and extend my time here at Cardiff Blues.

“This is my home region and I’ve come through the ranks with a lot of these boys. There’s no better feeling than running out there with your mates every weekend. I’ve still got international ambitions, and making a commitment to Cardiff Blues will only help me to put my hand up and press for more caps in the future.”
