Cardiff Rugby have confirmed that six players will be leaving the club at the conclusion of the 2021/22 season.

Cardiff and Wales full-back Hallam Amos will be retiring to focus on his medical career and has made 41 appearances for the Blue and Blacks apart from another 115 appearances for Dragons.

Luke Scully made his Cardiff debut against Ospreys in January last year and has made three appearances for the Welsh provincial side since then while Jason Tovey is set to retire from the professional game following a 15-year career.

Meanwhile, Alun Lawrence joined Jersey Reds on loan earlier and now has signed a contract extension while Jason Tovey made 45 appearances for the club across two stints. Rhys Gill will be quitting professional rugby after a 17-year career.

“I would like to thank all of the players for everything they have given in a Cardiff jersey over the years," said Cardiff director of rugby Dai Young to the club's official website.

“They can all be proud of what they have achieved in the game and I am sure they have many fond memories from their time at the Arms Park.

“Some like Hallam Amos, Rhys Gill, Scott Andrews and Jason Tovey are retiring after long careers in the professional game and we wish them all the very best for their future in new careers.

“I am sure they have made many lifelong friends and will remain familiar faces around the place, where there will always be a warm welcome.

“For those moving on to new clubs, I would like to extend my sincere thanks and best wishes for the remainder of their playing careers.

“They all have plenty to offer, and while they will not remain in Cardiff colours, we hope to see them on the pitch and fulfilling their potential in years to come.”
