Martyn Williams and Sam Warburton will provide further rugby expertise to Cardiff Blues after joining the board.
Both players earned legendary status wearing the number seven jersey for Cardiff Blues, Wales and the British and Irish Lions, and they will now impart their vast expertise in the boardroom.
The addition of Warburton and Williams follows the appointments of Hayley Parsons OBE and Andrew Williams as non-executive directors earlier this month.
During an illustrious professional career, Williams, who came through the ranks of Pontypridd, made 226 appearances for Wales’ Capital Region and was part of the EDF Energy and Amlin Challenge Cup winning squads.
Warburton came all the way through the Cardiff Blues age-grade system and made 106 appearances for his home region. He won 74 Wales caps, captaining his country more than anyone else and successfully led the Lions on two tours – remaining undefeated as a Test series captain.
Warburton retired last season and has since forged a career in television and has also become a Cardiff Blues Community Foundation ambassador.
