Scott Andrews, Rhys Gill, Brad Thyer, Kirby Myhill and Ethan Lewis have committed their futures to Cardiff Blues by agreeing new deals.
Andrews joined the club in 2008 and boasts over 100 appearances, while veteran Gill signed from Saracens in 2016.
The pair have both been involved with the Welsh national side and Blues coach John Mulvihill is delighted to have tied them down. “Scott Andrews is a hugely experienced professional, who has been in the international game, and gives 100 per cent in every single training session and game,” Mulvihill said. “Gilly played a significant role in some of our big wins in the season and is a massively competitive player.

“He brings huge experience to the group and is a new member of our leadership group, who will make sure every minute on the pitch counts next season.” Meanwhile, Thyer has proven to be a key member of the set-up since making his debut in 2014-15, earning 62 appearances, and Milvilhill feels the 26-year-old has a lot to offer in the future. He added: “Brad has really impressed me this season. His determination and work ethic is second to none and he continually strives to improve all elements of his game. “Technically he is one of our best set-piece players and his work, on both sides of the ball, has really improved this season.” Myhill, who previously captained the Wales under-20 side, and Lewis have also signed “long-term” contracts.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
