Cardiff Blues have announced that seven players, including hooker Matthew Rees, will be leaving the PRO12 region at the end of the season.
Rees joins Lucas Amorosino, Marc Breeze, Simon Humberstone, Adam Jones, Filo Paulo, and Joaquin Tuculet in departing the Arms Park.
Billy Millard, General Manager at Cardiff Blues, said: "We would like to thank all of the players for their commitment to Cardiff Blues during their time at the region and wish them well as they take up fresh challenges and the next stage of their careers.
"We will pay tribute to their contribution with presentations to them on the pitch following Saturday's home game with Zebre Rugby.
"There are always changes to the make-up of any squad at this time of the year as you plan for the future and when our new Head Coach is appointed he will also drive forward player recruitment and retention."
