Lou Reed: The second row has agreed to join the Blues
Cardiff Blues have bolstered their pack for next season with the signings of Lou Reed and Benoit Borrust.
Wales lock Reed makes the switch after appearing 109 times for the Scarlets, with the 24-year-old previously having played for the Celtic Warriors.
Former Sale Sharks and Auch prop Borrust joins up with the Blues from Perpignan.
Blues director of rugby Phil Davies told the club's official site: "Lou is a player I have previously worked with at the Scarlets.
"He has developed greatly over the last few seasons and has added vast experience to his undoubted talent during this time and will be a valuable asset to our forward pack.
"I'm sure he will thrive at the Blues and add real quality to our squad.
"Beniot has had good experience playing in French Top 14 and with Sale Sharks in England over the past three or four seasons and will certainly bolster our front row.
"He is a player that the region have followed over the past 12 months and I look forward to working with him at the Blues."
