Another pair of talented young Welsh stars are in search of new clubs

Two talented products of the Cardiff Blues academy system are in search of new clubs after being released from their respective contracts at the Pro12 side. 

Winger Elis-Wyn Benham (20) and scrumhalf Mike Hale (20) both excelled for the Pro12 side's Principality Premiership club - Cardiff RFC - but find themselves in search of new clubs without having featured for the Blues.

Benham first came to prominence for Cardiff Blues fans at the start of the 2014/15 season when he appeared in the Premiership Rugby 7s Series. 

After an impressive season with Cardiff RFC in the Principality Premiership, he was called into the Junior World Championship squad for Wales in the summer of 2015, where he scored a number of critical tries for the club. 

Meanwhile Hale had a productive season with the 'Blue and Blacks' in 2014/15 having come up through the Cardiff age grade system. 

As you can see from the videos below, both players are seriously talented and you'd imagine are will be picked up by professional clubs within or outside the Welsh system.
