Impressive Cardiff Blues pushed English powerhouse side Leicester Tigers all the way with an hugely encouraging performance as final preparations for the new Guinness PRO12 season continued at Welford Road.
Cardiff Blues confirmed that exciting back row prospect Ieuan Jones would join the region from the start of the 2014/15 season.
Wales Under-20 international Jones made the switch from Newport Gwent Dragons and boosted the back row options at Blues.
Jones, who stands 6ft 3in and weighs 16 stone, worked his way through the age grade ranks and Academy at Dragons before securing his first professional contract.
A strong ball carrier with the ability to break tackles, Jones was named in the Wales Under-20 squad for the Junior World Championship in South Africa in 2012. He followed up that selection a year later with a place in the Wales Under-20 squad for the 2013 Under-20 Six Nations.
