Former Ospreys, London Welsh, Scarlets, Dragons and Brive scrum-half Liam Davies has joined the Cardiff Blues on a short-term contract until the end of the season.
The 27-year-old started his career with Scarlets, for whom he made 43 appearances. In June 2008, Davies signed for Brive on a two-year contract before moving back to the UK, having spells with the Ospreys, London Welsh, Scarlets and the Dragons.
"Liam is a player that I am familiar with having coached him as a 19 year old in the Scarlets," Blues director of rugby Phil Davies told the club's official website.
"He is a very talented scrum half who has a great pass, a good kick and does the basics well.
"He played alongside Andy Goode in Brive and has come home looking for an opportunity to play.
"He will give us extra cover at scrum half for the rest of the season with Rob Lewis having returned to London Welsh on a loan spell."
