Cardiff Blues will welcome Matthew Rees to the Arms Park next season, after he signed a two-year contract.

Rees, who has gained 57 caps for Wales since making his debut in 2005, says the decision to leave the Scarlets was "tough".

“The Scarlets is where I established myself as a player however I feel that this is the right decision at this point in my career.

“For me personally, I feel that moving to the Blues will provide me with a fresh, new challenge that I am ready to tackle.”
