Bedford Blues have announced the new signing of highly rated back row forward, Jac Arthur, who joins the club from neighbours Ampthill.
The 24-year-old Welshman was a standout figure for Paul Turner’s side last season, featuring in all 24 of their Championship league and cup fixtures, chipping in with three tries.
Arthur experienced his first taste of rugby as a junior with Nantyffylon RFC before heading into the Ospreys age-grade set-up to further his development.
He completed his studies at Cardiff Metropolitan University where he went on to make 26 appearances as the side twinned competing in the BUCS set-up with a fourth-place finish in the WRU Championship in 2018/19.
He joined Ampthill in 2019, going on to make 40 appearances for The Mob including some tenacious displays against Bedford to catch the eye of the coaching department.
