Wales wing Josh Adams has signed a new contract with United Rugby Championship side Cardiff.

Adams joined the team in 2019 and has made 25 appearances, scoring 14 tries during his time with the region.

Out with injury

The speedster will miss the rest of the competition as he battles a knee injury but says he is thrilled to be plying his trade in Cardiff.

“It’s really frustrating to miss the remainder of this season, which has seen so much disruption,” said Adams.

“I came through the Six Nations and was really looking forward to having a run of games in blue and black, and helping the boys as much as possible.

“It was disappointing to pick up the injury, but I’m very happy here at the Arms Park and I was more than happy to sign a new contract.

“Moving back to Wales has been a great move for me and I also believe Cardiff is the best place for me to continue improving my own game.”

Liam Williams, Taulupe Faletau and Thomas Young will all join Adams at Cardiff next season, while director of rugby Dai Young was delighted with the flyer committing to the side.

“There is absolutely no doubt about Josh’s ability on the pitch, he is one of the best wings in the world and has proved it consistently on the highest stage,” said Young.

“He is incredibly hard working, is very effective both with and without the ball, is an absolutely deadly finisher and has the ability to create something from nothing.

“But he is also an important figure off the pitch as well. He is one of the leaders in our squad, who is growing in influence and is a brilliant role model for some of our younger players

“We are delighted that he has committed his future to us. He has had some great moments for us in a blue and black jersey and I am sure there will be many more.”
