Academy tighthead Warren heads for Ospreys

Posted by

Cardiff Blues Academy tighthead prop Ben Warren has signed for the Ospreys on a two-year deal starting this summer.

The 20-year-old started his rugby journey with Ystrad Rhondda RFC before playing for Rhondda Schools Rugby, Cardiff Blues age grade sides and Coleg y Cymoedd, winning the WRU College League in 2016 and British Colleges title in 2017.

Warren has also earned Wales honours at U16 and U18 level before winning 15 caps for Wales U20 across the 2019 and 2020 seasons, only missing out on more due to the coronavirus pandemic.

First team opportunities have been hard to come by at the Arms Park though, with Dillon Lewis, Dmitri Arhip, Scott Andrews, Keiron Assiratti and Will Davies-King also challenging for the number three jersey, so the Merthyr man heads to the Liberty Stadium for next season.
