Cardiff Rugby have confirmed that lock Teddy Williams has penned a new deal with the Welsh province.

Son of Welsh international Owain Williams and nephew of Gareth Williams, the 22-year-old made his senior debut with the club in 2020 and has featured in 26 games till now.

A former Wales U18 and U20 international, Williams is part of the ongoing Rugby World Cup training squad.

“I’ve really enjoyed this past season, getting more opportunities in the first team, and now I’m looking forward to building on that in the future," he told the club's official website.

“I love playing here at the Arms Park and we’ve enjoyed some really memorable wins. Hopefully we can get more of those moving forward.

”That Sale game will stay long in the memory for me, but so will wins over the likes of Stormers.

“There’s a lot of change here with some influential players moving on but it’s an opportunity for a lot of the younger boys to step up now and try to take the club forward.

“It’s definitely an exciting challenge for us as a group. There will be some ups-and-down along the way, but hopefully the younger group can come through and grab the bull by the horns."
