With the paperwork now in place, Cardiff RFC can confirm that former Cardiff RFC and Wales fly half Mark Ring will join the club as Backs Coach.
Ring first came to attention as outside half for the Cardiff RFC Youth team and selection for the full Cardiff RFC side soon followed.

Ring ended his top-flight club career with Cardiff in 1996 after the first Heineken Cup Final against Stade Toulousain. He then moved into coaching with West Hartlepool RFC, Cardiff RFC, Penzance and Caerphilly RFC.
Currently coaching with Welsh Premier Division side Cross Keys RFC, Ring will leave his post to rejoin Cardiff.
Lee Jarvis continues his full-time role as Skills Coach with the Cardiff Blues.
John Huw Williams, Chairman of Cardiff RFC said: "I'm glad that Cardiff RFC have secured the services of Mark to be our Backs Coach.
"We have some extremely talented backs playing for us and I'm sure Mark will be able to bring the best out of them."
