CARDIFF BLUES CAPTAIN Gethin Jenkins has signed a new one-year contract with the Pro14 side.

Wales’ most capped player has agreed terms for a 14th season with the Blues.

The 37-year-old former Wales skipper says he still has plenty to offer at the start of what will be a new era under head coach John Mulvihill, who will replace Danny Wilson the end of the season.

“I’m happy to sign a new deal with Cardiff Blues. I have been here for virtually all of my career and I’m enjoying captaining the boys and driving standards within the group.” said the prop.

“Moving away was never really an option for me so it is good to get it done and stay at the Arms Park. There is a great feeling a team spirit around the place at the moment and I really want to remain part of that.

“I’ve been pleased with my form since returning from a couple of injuries at the beginning of the season and feel I can continue to make a strong contribution on and off the pitch.

“I have had good conversations with John Mulvihill, who will succeed Danny Wilson in the summer, and I’m looking forward to next season. A continuing part of my role and responsibility here is to help develop some of the exciting front-row talents we have here while competing for places.
