Tovey to join Cardiff

Cardiff Blues have confirmed the signing of Newport Gwent Dragons' highly-rated playmaker Jason Tovey for next season.

Tovey, who is set to replace Connacht-bound Dan Parks for the Blues, has been a consistent Dragons performer in the fly-half role.

"I had a look around at my options, and the facilities at the Blues were one of the big factors for me deciding to join them," 22-year-old Tovey said.

"Also, having the opportunity to play with the likes of Jamie Roberts, Leigh Halfpenny and Sam Warburton is, for me personally, a big step forward in my career.

"One of the other key things I looked for was playing Heineken Cup rugby, and hopefully I can also push for international honours."
