Davies sets out Blues target
Cardiff Blues have agreed a compensation deal with Worcester and confirmed Phil Davies as their director of rugby.
The 48-year-old enjoyed a successful coaching spell with Leeds, guiding them into the Premiership as well as securing Powergen Cup glory in 2005.
The former lock forward, who was capped 46 times by Wales, has since been part of the coaching team at Sixway at Worcester but will now fill the void left by Dai Young's move to Wasps last summer.
"I'm really looking forward to starting the job," he said. "It's a role I've been passionate about for a long, long time.
"The Blues cover a massive region, the biggest in Wales, and it's a great opportunity for a young group of players and staff to work hard in order to push the region forward and look to build upon the foundations that have been laid over the last eight or nine years.
"Our aim will be to move forward, play attractive rugby and over time develop the Blues into a very competitive side in all competitions and ultimately win trophies and produce quality players to represent Wales."
