Cardiff Blues have added to their squad ahead of the new PRO12 season with the signing of versatile back Geraint Walsh from Pontypridd.

Full-back Walsh - who is also comfortable playing at centre - joins Cardiff Blues after yet another outstanding individual campaign for his club.

The 26-year-old was named the Principality Premiership Player of the Year and won the Try of the Year gong for his effort against Llandovery.

"I'm really pleased to get the opportunity to go into the professional environment at Cardiff Blues. At 26 I am determined to take the chance and show I can perform at this level," he told the Blues site.

"I know a number of the boys that Cardiff Blues have signed over the last few years so there will be familiar faces that will help me settle in.

"The plan is to keep the form from last season going and kick on again. I was really pleased with how I went last year, but I feel I can only benefit from being with the Blues and the players around me pushing up standards."
