Cardiff have announced that centre Harri Millard has signed a new contract with the Welsh province.

Millard made his debut for Cardiff in 2016 against Glasgow but was hampered by injuries in the early part of his career. He has overall made eight appearances for Cardiff and had represented Wales Under 20 side in the past.

“I’m very happy to sign another contract with Cardiff. We are playing a great brand of rugby, which everyone is buying into and enjoying," he told the club's official website.

“I have loved every game I’ve been involved in this season and the fans have been absolutely brilliant, packing out the Arms Park and creating an amazing atmosphere.

“It is also great to have so many youngsters coming through, playing so well and getting international honours.

“I’m now really looking forward to the rest of this season and continuing to build as a group under Matt Sherratt and the rest of the back-room staff.”

Cardiff Rugby head coach Matt Sherratt is pleased with Millard committing his immediate future with the club.

“I’m really pleased to keep Harri here beyond the current season.

“I have said previously that I was convinced he would be a breakthrough player during my first stint at the club. Injuries really impacted those years but he has great ability, which he has regularly displayed this season.

“He can beat people one-on-one, he is very fast, and I think he’s surprised people with that this season, is explosive and physical."

Cardiff are positioned 12th in the United Rugby Championship table with three wins from 15 matches.
