Cardiff Blues have admitted they are keen on bringing Gareth Anscombe to the region.

Anscombe is currently playing for the Chiefs in New Zealand but rumours have done the rounds that Warren Gatland is ineterested in bringing Anscombe over as he qualifies for Wales through his mother. Anscombe has stayed tight-lipped on the rumours but Blues CEO Richard Holland has declared their interest in him.

"We would be very keen on having Gareth here at the Blues," Holland told Wales Online. "I am very hopeful that we can make that happen. I met Gareth when I was in New Zealand in November and he is a terrific young guy who has got a big decision to make as a young man.

"He hasn't been chosen in the New Zealand training squad. That could be the decision to swing it in our favour. We would like to see him in a Blues shirt."
