Kristian Dacey

Kristian Dacey made his competitive debut for Cardiff Blues in September 2010 in victory over Connacht at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The Merthyr born ace came through the Merthyr mini and junior sections before playing for the Cardiff 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 Cardiff Blues Under-20 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.

Dacey has become a key part of the Blues team and was the region's top try scorer in the 2013/14 season as he continued to show his eye for the try line.

In the 2014/15 season he also pushed his international claims and was rewarded when he was named in the initial Rugby World Cup squad for Wales.

The hooker made his Wales debut against Ireland in 2015 and has gone on to pick up eight caps on the international stage.

In 2017, during Wales' summer tour of the Pacific Islands, Dacey was called into Warren Gatland's British and Irish Lions squad as cover, but did not make an appearance from the bench.
