Tom James has announced he will return to rugby after taking time off while he was treated for depression.

The winger has not played professional rugby for just over six months, but he will be back plying his trade for Cardiff Blues for this upcoming season.

James, who has won 12 caps for Wales, tweeted earlier this week: "Looking forward to getting back on the horse tomorrow at Cardiff Blues!”

"Thanks to everyone for their support over the past six months."

The European Challenge Cup winners will prepare for the new campaign with pre-season games against Leicester Tigers and Exeter Chiefs next month.
