Cardiff Blues contract for Watts-Jones
FORMER Albion forward Rory Watts-Jones has won himself a contract with Welsh regional side Cardiff Blues.
The University of Plymouth graduate, who progressed through Albion's development side into a regular Championship player under former coach Graham Dawe, has joined his ex-Brickfields team-mate Robin Copeland at the Blues.
Blindside flanker Watts-Jones left Albion in 2011 to join Cardiff RFC with the hope of making the Wales Sevens squad.
This summer he joined the Blues for pre-season and they were impressed enough to offer him a deal this week.

"This is actually my third professional contract," he told Cardiff Blues' official website.
"I played down in Plymouth for a few years whilst I was studying at the university, but it's my first professional contract in Wales, which is nice.
"Robin Copeland was with Plymouth at the same time so I have trained with him before and he's a great guy."
He added: "I would like to establish myself as a first team squad member and get a few starts and see how it goes really.
"I played all the pre-season games and it was definitely a step-up.
"With all the conditioning and strength work we have done in the summer it was manageable.
"I just can't wait to play for the Blues at the Arms Park in a competitive match."
