Efan Daniel was signed onto academy terms as a 16-year-old in 2019, having come through the club’s pathway system.
The former Treorchy Comprehensive School pupil captained the Under-16 North side to the Regional Age Grade Championship in 2019.
The hooker, who represented Treherbert, Treorchy and Llantwit Fardre in his younger days, was also part of the Coleg y Cymoedd side who finished runners up in the 2020 School & Colleges League.
The 19 year old went on to make his international debut for Wales under-20 in the Six Nations and made his Blue and Blacks bow as a replacement in the January 2022 URC win over Leinster.
Daniel put pen-to-paper on his first professional deal with the club in April 2022.
