Roberts eyes Cardiff Blues return

British & Irish Lions centre Jamie Roberts has hinted that he will return to Cardiff Blues at some point in his career but insists for now he is fully focused on the year ahead.

Roberts, who made four appearances for the Lions last summer, spent six years with the Blues before moving to French outfit Racing Metro in 2013.

And though Roberts is gearing up for a crucial year with the World Cup just around the corner, he admits he has one eye on the future and a possible return to Cardiff Arms Park.

"Long-term, I'd love to be back in Cardiff at some point, whether that's after this contract or a bit later, I'm not sure," he said.

"There's some great people involved with the club [Blues] at the moment, some great players and some great youngsters coming through.

"I think they're a team on the up with a new coaching set-up, and it would be great to hopefully play a part in their success in future years.

"But I'm not looking beyond this season. It's a massive year for club and country, certainly with the World Cup next year."
