Date published: June 16 2015

Former Wales internationals Matthew Rees and Andy Powell are reportedly considering contract offers from Welsh Championship outfit Merthyr.

According to BBC Sport, the British and Irish Lions duo have been offered deals after being let go by PRO12 sides Cardiff Blues and the Dragons respectively.

"[Rees] has got to weigh everything up, really. We've offered him a good deal and we're just fingers-crossed that he will come," said coach Lee Jarvis.

"And it's the same with Andy, we're just waiting now."

Rees, 34, and Powell, 33, have played 61 and 23 times for Wales respectively.
