Cardiff Blues have announced that Tomos Williams has signed a new long-term deal to remain with the club beyond this summer.
The 26-year-old’s current deal is up this summer and negotiations had been delayed as the Treorchy man focused on his involvement in Wales’ Six Nations squad and then the European Challenge Cup round of 16 tie with London Irish.
With them out of the way Williams has committed his future to the Arms Park though, having come through the Academy ranks and gone on to play 102 times to-date, scoring 18 times with the most recent being a brace against Munster last Friday.
He has also won 22 test caps for Wales so far, scoring six tries, and will be hopeful of adding more to his tally this summer, as well as remaining available for the British and Irish Lions tour should injury cover be required.
Speaking to the Cardiff Blues official website, Williams said, “I’m really happy to agree this new contract and continue my stay at Cardiff with a lot of boys who I have come through with.
“We have a lot of exciting talent and a lot of potential moving forward, especially with Dai back in charge and Matt Sherratt also coming back.
“I want to be a part of that and It would be great to help this club challenge for more silverware. I’m very grateful to be staying here and I’m looking forward to getting back to the Arms Park with crowds in attendance in the near future.”
