Transfer News: Alex Cuthbert’s move to the Premiership confirmed

Wales wing Alex Cuthbert has agreed on a deal to join Aviva Premiership champions Exeter Chiefs in the summer, confirmed Wales Online.

The 27-year-old announced at the start of 2018 he would be leaving the Blues after seven seasons at the Arms Park region, with a move to Chiefs first reported by us earlier this week.

Moving across to England in the summer means Cuthbert will no longer be eligible for Wales selection, having only racked up 47 caps, 13 short of the 60 required to remain eligible.

Cuthbert scored 16 tries for Wales including the Grand Slam-winning score against France in 2012 and a double in the 30-3 win over England in the Six Nations title decider in 2013.


He also scored a try for the British and Irish Lions in the first Test victory over Australia in 2013.

His departure from the Blues could see the region enter the market for George North when the Lions wing returns to Welsh rugby in the summer from Northampton Saints.
