Teenage wing Harry Robinson has agreed a senior contract with Cardiff Blues.
The 19-year-old made a try-scoring debut for Wales against the Barbarians in June and has now inked a deal that will see him exposed to regular action at regional level.
Blues coach Phil Davies was delighted to have retained on the region's brightest prospects.
"Having worked with him here for the last couple of weeks I can see that he is a player with massive potential," he said. "He's had a couple of outings for Wales whether that is for the Sevens or for Wales against the Barbarians and in Australia.
"Now his challenge is to play regional rugby week in week out and play rugby for Wales. He's certainly talented enough and applies himself well. I've been impressed with his attitude since he's come back from the tour."
