    Cardiff Rugby has announced that Samoa centre Rey Lee-Lo has signed a new one-year contract, ensuring his stay at the Arms Park for another season.

    Lee-Lo, 38, originally joined Cardiff from the Hurricanes in 2015. During the 2023-24 season, he made 13 appearances. Expressing his enthusiasm, Lee-Lo said, “I’m thrilled to continue with Cardiff, playing alongside the boys and in front of our fantastic Arms Park supporters. I felt good about my performance last season, and my body is still in great shape. I have a lot to offer this team and enjoy mentoring our young, promising players.”

    Veteran Experience Valued

    Head coach Matt Sherratt shared his excitement about retaining Lee-Lo, describing him as one of the top centres in European rugby for many years. “Rey consistently performed at a high level throughout last season. His experience and leadership are invaluable, both on and off the pitch. It’s no coincidence that young talents like Ben Thomas and Mason Grady have thrived with Rey by their side,” Sherratt commented.

    New Signings and Committed Players

    Cardiff has bolstered their squad with several new signings, including former Newcastle players Ryan Jennings and Iwan Stephens, ex-Bristol duo Callum Sheedy and Dan Thomas, props Ed Byrne and Danny Southworth, and wing Gabriel Hamer-Webb.

    Additionally, several players have reaffirmed their commitment to Cardiff, including Grady, Corey Domachowski, Liam Belcher, Keiron Assiratti, Cameron Winnett, Alex Mann, Mackenzie Martin, Evan Lloyd, Harri Millard, James Botham, Jacob Beetham, Alun Lawrence, and Dafydd Hughes.

    Departures

    As Cardiff looks ahead, they bid farewell to Tomos Williams, Rhys Carre, Owen Lane, Ciaran Parker, Aled Summerhill, Arwel Robson, Max Clark, Gonzalo Bertranou, Matthew Aubrey, and Willis Halaholo.
