Navidi commits to Cardiff cause

1st March 2019, 07:07 by Alex Jack

Wales flanker Josh Navidi says he's delighted to put pen to paper on a new contract with Pro 14 outfit Cardiff Blues.

Having started all three Six Nations games against France, Italy and England this season, Navidi has emerged as an important figure in Warren Gatland's plans with Wales leading into the 2019 World Cup.

The 28-year-old has now committed his future to the Blues and the talented back-rower is pleased to have got a deal over the line with his club in what is a big year on the international stage.

"It's nice to get another contract signed," said Navidi.

"This new contract takes me beyond 10 years at Cardiff Blues. This place has been massive for me and got me to where I wanted in my career.

"With the World Cup around the corner it was important to stay in Wales to ensure I'm eligible but I'm also very happy here and hopefully we can achieve like last year and keep pushing forward in the PRO14."
