Young Cardiff Blues fly-half Luke Scully has linked up with Cornish Pirates for their upcoming Greene King Championship campaign.
The 20-year-old arrived at the Arms Park last summer having initially been part of the Ospreys age grade setup before spending two years in Worcester Warriors’ Academy, during which time he won Wales U20 honours.
Since then he has been restricted to just two Cardiff Blues A appearances and a single first team outing off the bench against Ospreys on New Year’s Day, with the cancellation of the Indigo Group Premiership and Celtic Cup restricting his development.
Scully now links up with the Pirates and could make his debut in a pre-season friendly against Jersey Reds on Saturday before the league season gets going against Saracens the following week.
Speaking to the Cardiff Blues official website about the move, Dai Young said “One of the major challenges for clubs throughout this period is ensuring young players can continue their development. With no A league fixtures and no Welsh Premiership, Luke has not had the opportunities he would have hoped for but this is a great chance for him to link up with a quality outfit.
“The Championship is a highly competitive league and Luke will now benefit from regular game time before returning to us in the summer. We wish him all the very best for the move and will keep a close eye on his progression in Cornwall.”
