Jason Tovey: Welsh fly-half will move from Newport to Cardiff
Cardiff Blues have confirmed the signing of Newport Gwent Dragons' highly-rated playmaker Jason Tovey for next season.
Tovey, who is set to replace Connacht-bound Dan Parks for the Blues, has been a consistent Dragons performer in the fly-half role.
"I had a look around at my options, and the facilities at the Blues were one of the big factors for me deciding to join them," Tovey, 22, said.
"Also, having the opportunity to play with the likes of Jamie Roberts, Leigh Halfpenny and Sam Warburton is, for me personally, a big step forward in my career.
"One of the other key things I looked for was playing Heineken Cup rugby, and hopefully I can also push for international honours."
