Rory Watts-Jones has committed his future to Cardiff Blues by agreeing a new contract with the club.

Flanker Watts-Jones is the latest talented young forward to agree a new deal following Ellis Jenkins and Kristian Dacey who also pledged their futures to the Blues last month.

The 25-year-old, who previously played for Plymouth Albion, joined the Blues in 2012 and has made 25 appearances for the Blues in all competitions.

Director of rugby Phil Davies said: "I'm delighted that Rory has re-signed for the Blues. He came into the senior set-up at Blues two years ago and has really taken his opportunity.

"Over the last few years he has progressed and has represented us in the RaboDirect PRO12, LV=Cup and Heineken Cup. He has been particularly impressive in Europe and was outstanding in the two games with Glasgow this season.

"I'm really pleased that he has committed to a long-term deal and I'm sure he will only get better in the years to come and continue to be a key part of our squad."

Watts-Jones added: "I'm very grateful to have the contract offer from Blues and accept it. Phil (Davies) is a loyal man and he has shown his great faith in me, I want to repay that with my performances.

"This season I feel I have stepped up and looked to take my chance in the first team. I'm a local boy from the region and there is nowhere else I would want to play my rugby."
