Lewis takes Blues manager's role
Allan Lewis
Cardiff Blues have named Allan Lewis as team manager and confirmed they want Rob Howley to take a coaching role.

Lewis, the former Celtic Warriors assistant coach, had been working as the region's development officer in the valleys since this the summer.

Howley has been linked with a return to the Arms Park after the former Wales and Cardiff scrum-half was forced to retire because of injury.

The Blues are looking to find a defence coach and assistant forwards coach.

Former Wales fly-half and international rugby's top points scorer Neil Jenkins has already started working with the regions kicking coach as part of a job share agreement with the Welsh Rugby Union.

Said coach Dai Young: "He has already taken three or four sessions with the players and, as you would expect, the feedback has been very positive.

"With the other two appointments, we certainly have people in mind and hope to make formal announcements imminently."

Young added that having Lewis will continue to concentrate his efforts as a rugby co-ordinator throughout the region, but will provide valuable support on match days.

"There are undeniable advantages in having an extra person with us on match days and Allan fits the bill perfectly."
