Tomos Williams pens new contract

First Team News | 1st June 2021

Cardiff Blues are thrilled to confirm Tomos Williams has penned a new long-term deal to remain at the club.

The electric scrum-half was out of contract at the end of the season and attracted widespread interest but he has now committed his future to the Arms Park outfit.

He is the latest star to pledge his allegiance to Cardiff, at the start of an exciting new era with Dai Young at the helm, following in the footsteps of fellow Wales internationals Jarrod Evans, Owen Lane and Willis Halaholo.

Williams was pleased to agree a new deal at his home club and is excited about a promising future in the capital.

He 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.”

Since making his debut during the 2013-14 season, Williams has made 102 appearances for his home club, scoring 18 tries, including a stunning effort in the 2018 Challenge Cup final and a brace last weekend against Munster.

Williams has established himself as one of the most exciting players in the game and has also won 22 caps for Wales.

Cardiff Blues director of rugby Dai Young,  was delighted to secure another of his key lieutenants and believes Williams can get even better at the Arms Park.

He said: “Retaining Tomos was a really important one for us and we have now managed to keep all of the players we wanted to keep, which is testament to the club in what has been a difficult year.

“It means we maintain some real strength and depth in the position, which is really important for our competitiveness and ensures the players will continually challenge each other.

“We have all see how devastating Tomos can be with the ball in hand, he certainly has that x-factor and is a worry for defences but his all round game is also very good.

“He has been frustrated by injuries during the last year but with a run of games, he is only going to get better and better.”
