Double boost for Cardiff Blues

Date published: February 2 2017

Cardiff Blues have confirmed new deals for front-row duo Dillon Lewis and Ethan Lewis, who have both committed their futures to the region.

In a boost, the former Wales U20s internationals have followed in the footsteps of the likes of Sam Warburton, Gethin Jenkins and Tom James.

Head coach Danny Wilson was pleased to secure their services and believes both have a huge amount to contribute in the coming years.

Wilson said: “It’s great to retain Dillon and Ethan, who are a key part of the Cardiff Blues pack moving forward.

“Dillon is a very good scrummaging prop, with a good all-round game and has achieved a lot of success at age-grade level.

“He has been unfortunate with injuries this season but has a big future in front of him if he continues to work hard and progress.

“Ethan’s another player we have high hopes for. He has also been unfortunate with injuries so far this season but is back fit and gives us plenty of strength in depth at hooker.”
