Cardiff have announced that centre Rey Lee-Lo has signed a new one-year contract with the Welsh province.

Born in Samoa, Lee-Lo started playing for provincial side Counties Manukau in 2009 and played Super Rugby for Hurricanes and Crusaders before joining Cardiff in 2015.

He has made 163 appearances for the club that includes 13 from the 2023/24 season. He made his international debut for Samoa in 2014.

“I’m just really happy to be staying here with Cardiff for another year, playing with the boys and in front of the amazing Arms Park crowd.

“I really enjoyed the past season and feel like my form was pretty good. My body is still feeling really good and I have plenty left to give to this team.

“Helping bring through some of the young and exciting players in the squad is also something I enjoy and it has been great to see them becoming top quality players in their own right and earning international honours.

“From a family perspective we are also really happy here in Cardiff. The club, the supporters and the city itself has been so welcoming since we came over in 2015, and it is home for us now.

“We love it here, the support we receive is amazing and I’m looking forward to continuing to pull on the Blue and Black jersey next season.

“I’m very grateful to the club for giving me this opportunity and also to my family for their continued support in allowing me to do what I love.”
