Cardiff Blues have completed the signing of scrum-half Liam Davies on a short-term contract until the end of the season.
The 27-year-old started his career with Llanelli Scarlets before joining Brive on a two-year deal in June 2008.
He has had spells with the Ospreys, London Welsh, Scarlets and the Dragons since returning to the UK.
Blues director of rugby Phil Davies told the club's official website: "Liam is a player that I am familiar with having coached him as a 19-year-old with the Scarlets.
"He is a very talented scrum half who has a great pass, a good kick and does the basics well.
"He played alongside Andy Goode in Brive and has come home looking for an opportunity to play.
"He will give us extra cover at scrum half for the rest of the season with Rob Lewis having returned to London Welsh on a loan spell."
