Filise Stays On

Filise one of six to sign new contracts

Taufa’ao Filise scores a try against the Ospreys in April.

Cardiff Blues can confirm regional stalwart Taufa’ao Filise has penned a new one-year deal.

The Tongan tight-head arrived at Cardiff Arms Park in 2006 and quickly established himself as a cornerstone of the pack.

Taufa’ao Filise takes on Sam Vesty of Leicester in his first season for the Blues in 2006.

He has already made 241 appearances for the region, more than anyone else, and is now embarking on his 12th season in the capital.

Brad Thyer, Matthew Rees, Scott Andrews, Anton Peikrishvili and Lewis Jones have also agreed new deals completing the 2017-18 squad.
