Cardiff Blues explained in a statement that: “The decision was taken after the second-row informed the Cardiff Blues of his intention to explore a possible opportunity overseas.”

The British and Irish Lion second-row came through the pathway at the Cardiff Blues and made 16 first-team appearances before switching to the Dragons via a short stint at Moseley.

He made 110 appearances during seven years at Rodney Parade, captaining the region during the last three seasons and has established himself on the international stage.
