Kristian Dacey made his competitive debut for the Blues in September 2010 in victory over Connacht at the Cardiff City Stadium and has gone on to become one of the hottest prospects in Welsh rugby.
The Merthyr born ace came through the Merthyr mini and junior sections before playing for the Blues North age-groups and the formidable Merthyr Youth outfit, where he was part of the team that won the "Youth Treble" - the Youth Cup, the District Cup and the League.
In the 2007/08 season, Kristian was playing for Merthyr in Division One, and for the Blues U20 team. In early 2010, it was decided that Kristian's progression in Rugby would be better nurtured with a switch to the hooker position, where he has flourished.
Dacey has become a key part of the Blues team and was the region's top try scorer in the 2013/14 season as he continued to show his eye for the try line.
