Wales wing swaps Cardiff for France

TRANSFER NEWS: Cardiff confirmed Owen Lane will leave the club at the end of the season to join Valance Romans in France.


The 26-year-old came through the Cardiff pathway system and burst onto the scene during the 2017-18 season, which culminated in winning the European Challenge Cup.

In total, the wing has made 92 appearances for the Blue and Blacks, scoring 43 tries.

“I am forever grateful for the opportunity to represent my boyhood club that I grew up supporting, ” Lane said.

“It truly was a dream come true progressing from Whitchurch to Cardiff RFC to the first team squad.

“The club also gave me the opportunity to represent my country which was something I could only dream of as a child.

“I have made friends both on and off the pitch that will last a lifetime and Cardiff will always be home. It’s where mine and my partner’s family are and I will always class Cardiff as my club.


“Moving to France is a chance for me and Lucy to experience a different culture and league, which is a new and exciting challenge for me both on and off the field.”
