Kristian Dacey made his competitive debut for the Blues in September 2010 in their 22 point to 6 win over Connacht at the Cardiff City Stadium.
The Merthyr born player 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.
In 2013 Dacey take the further step to becoming a regular Blues match day player as he was one of Phil Davies’ young players to face Europe’s premier Club Competition, the Heineken Cup.
