Welsh international signs for Premiership powerhouse

Loosehead prop Rhys Carre will depart Welsh region Cardiff at the end of the season to re-join English Premiership side Saracens. Confirming the news today, Carre said, “It wasn’t easy to come to this decision as Cardiff is obviously a club which means a huge amount to me.

“It’s my home club, the club I grew up supporting and I came through the ranks here so I have a lot of friends in the squad.

“But after my previous move to Saracens was cut short, I’ve always felt I had unfinished business there. I had a great year in London and I’m really looking forward to getting back into a different environment and competition.

“I feel like I am performing well at the moment and I’m really enjoying the style of play at Cardiff so hopefully I can continue that from the rest of this season and then at Sarries.

“I’m hugely grateful to everyone at Cardiff – my teammates, the staff and fans – for the opportunities and support I have been given.

“It is a team heading in the right direction and with a lot of potential. I will give my all to that blue and black jersey for the remainder of the season and will always keep a close eye on the Arms Park.”

Capped 20 times by his country, Carre missed out on selection for both the 2023 Rugby World Cup and this year’s Guinness Six Nations under Warren Gatland.

The 26-year-old is five caps short of the current Welsh Rugby Union selection criteria and as such will be unavailable for international selection at the end of the season.
